Inscription on the back of Memorial
William Wallace Memorial is placed on the supposed site where Wallace stood and watched the approaching English Army from the direction of Linlithgow. Wallace used this spot as a command post to place his army at the Battle of Falkirk. History tells us that Wallace and the Scots lost the battle and Wallace set off in hiding to prevent English capture and to keep the hopes of Scottish Independence alive.
