Stirling's Wallace Monument to be upgraded


The National Wallace Monument, the 220 foot tall tower built to commemorate the Scottish freedom fighter Sir William Wallace, is to receive a new visitor centre at the base of the Abbey Craig in Stirling, on which it is situated, alongside a new restaurant and ticket office. The plan is for the work to be completed before the start of the tourist season in 2009.

Hopefully they will take the opportunity to remove the really terrible statue of Mel Gibson in the car park!

"Alba gu bragh....!!!"

(OK, that's enough of all that....!)

I'm sure there must be a place in the USA called Stirling that would happily take the aforementioned Gibson eyesore!
