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."

The National Wallace Monument

The National Wallace Monument was opened in 1869 to commemorate the life of the Scottish patriot Sir William Wallace and attracts over 115,000 visitors each year.
 
Visitors can explore the Monument where Wallace's life and legacy is told in three galleries, one of which features his legendary battle sword. An impressive 246 steps can be climbed to reach the top of the Monument, where visitors can stand in the Crown and take in the breathtaking 360-degree view of central Scotland and the Highlands to the north.
