Wallace Monument viewed from Stirling Castle

The impressive Wallace Monument stood above the valley north of Stirling. The Scots built it to commemorate William Wallace, an opponent of English domination in the late thirteenth century and a symbol of Scottish self-determination. I took this photograph as we approached the entrance to Stirling Castle, not far from the Robert the Bruce statue. Stirling Castle became important in the fifteenth century, grew from there, and has been maintained ever since. We particularly enjoyed visiting the Regimental Museum of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders. Much of the castle had been restored to its original condition and additional restorations were in progress.
