A special discounted price for entry to the National Wallace Monument in Stirling will apply during the winter months, for entry before 11am.

Between 1 November 2017 and 28 February 2018 early risers will be rewarded with a 50% off admission fee to The National Wallace Monument before 11am and can also purchase a hot drink for £1 from Legends Coffee House, to ward off winter chills.

Ken Thomson, from Stirling District Tourism, said: "The view of the morning winter sun from the Crown is just beautiful and we hope this, along with discounted entry, will encourage the early birds to join us over the coming months."
