The Wallace Monument in Scotland


Scotland's Wallace Monument overlooks the town of Stirling on the Forth River, about 45 minutes northwest of Edinburgh. Erected in 1869, it commemorates one of the most significant events in Scottish history: the Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297, in which the great hero William Wallace inflicted a crushing victory on English forces led by King Edward I as they crossed the river here.  The great battle was immortalized in the 1996 movie Braveheart, although the scene was actually filmed in Ireland.
