220 feet (67m) high, this Victorian Gothic tower was opened in 1869 to commemorate Scotland’s greatest freedom fighter, Sir William Wallace (1267-1305). It was funded by public subscription, and donations poured in from expatriate Scots around the world. Support came from many European leaders, including the Italian patriot, Garibaldi.

Sir William Wallace of Elerslie, hero of Scotland and true patriot, his desire for peace and freedom united the clans, gained the loyalty of the people, struck fear into his enemies and defied the cruel hand of an evil, waring and invading King – Edward ‘Longshanks’ Plantagenet I of England.

But hay hoy theres allways tomorrow.

    Have you seen the Wallace statue? It’s somewhere hidden deep in a field in Scotland. It stands about 3m tall overlooking a valley and it’s reddish looking. I’ll look through old photos, see if I can find picture : )
