Well, this wasn't exactly as I had pictured it in my mind. It is somewhat surreal to find this in the country side, kind of hidden away in the bush...you will never see it from the road. It was a bit of a rainy walk...More

Lovely walk through the woods but surprised when we got there by the statue which was huge and strangely clad....still worth a visit though.

The best bit ,if it is a sunny day, is the woodland walk to the Statue.The statue itself is not a justification for a wet walk from the car.

A short walk to a statue of Wallis which when you get there is not looked after and very over grown, the lovely view that people mention is hard to see for the foliage, a shame and a bit pointless to visit.

It is free to see the Statue. You take a short walk through a wooded area which is pretty good under foot. Wheel chair users would manage this path. There is a small free car park.

The statue is located on a steep hill, overlooking a beautiful valley next to the River Tweed. It can be accessed from a small car park on the road out of Dryburgh, near St. Boswells - or by a fairly steep path out of Dryburgh...More

Free to visit, this little gem is on the road between Dryburgh and Melrose/Abbotsford. There is a small parking area for maybe ten vehicles. Go through the gate and follow the path. You will come to the monument after about five minutes walk through a...More

If you are visiting Melrose, Dryburgh or the Scottish Borders in general, particularly if you're visiting Scott's View, a stop off at the Wallace monument is well worth it. A short walk from the car park leads you to the monument and a lovely view...More

Overlooking the River Tweed this huge monument to William Wallace (not the Mel Gibson version) is worth a visit. A short walk from the car park. Wallace hid out in the Border forests so its fitting that the statue is hidden in a wood.
