Guided Tours of Scotland
On the Braveheart Tour I take you to many of the places that played a part in the life of Scottish warrior and hero, William Wallace. Most closely associated with the Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297 where he defeated Edward I (Longshanks) of England, there was much more to this legendary character than Mel Gibson was able to portray in the movie Braveheart. Visit Stirling Castle (an English garrison at the time of the battle), the National Wallace Monument (where you can view his original sword) situated on the Abbey Craig where Wallace watched the movements of his adversaries before the battle and Stirling Bridge itself. Legend has it that Wallace's dismembered body was secretly buried by the Monks of Cambuskenneth Abbey, here I can show you the exact tombstone said to mark his grave. Other notable landmarks that can be incorporated into A Braveheart Tour are the Wallace Well near Glasgow where he was betrayed and captured, the remains of Wallace's home in Elderslie and the Battle of Falkirk Memorial site.
