The Monument has recently been undergoing extensive external refurbishment and internal transformation in time for its reopening this spring. New interactive exhibitions on William Wallace, the Wars of Independence and in the Hall of Heroes provide a further draw for visitors.

This tour will include a briefing on the history and development of the monument and its surrounding site, discussing the challenges of managing a listed building as a popular tourist attraction, and a visit to, and climb of, the monument itself to view the new exhibitions.

Assemble in the Visitor Reception Centre at the car park where refreshments will be available from 6pm. The tour is expected to last around 2 hours.
