Wallace Monument Stirling

The city of Stirling is often called "The Heart of Scotland", because it marks the entry point towards the Scottish Highlands. It also has some of the most important battlefields of Scotland's past. The photo shows the view from the castle towards the Wallace Monument, the tower on the hill, built in 1869 to remember Scot Lord William Wallace. He defeated in 1297 the English in the Battle of Stirling Bridge and freed Stirling Castle which was occupied by King Eduard I. The monument can be visited, and on sunny days the view must be fantastic.
