On my way home, visited the Wallace Monument in Stirling, built to commemorate William Wallace, Scottish hero (yeah yeah, Braveheart, Mel Gibson, etc.). Three things about it are steep — the stairs to the top, the walk up the hill to it, and the £10.50 entry fee. These are just about compensated for by the view, however, which takes in the Ochils (where I walked yesterday), Stirling, the Highlands to the west and to the east, the valley of the River Forth. This is perhaps the least glamorous direction, but photographically the most interesting — today, at least.
