The Spirit of Scotland
The Spirit of Scotland
The Spirit of Scotland is the name of this sculpture by Richard Price erected here in 2004 to commemorate William Wallace's connections with the area, most notably the successful ambush of King Edward I's baggage train nearby in 1297, during the Scottish Wars of Independence.

The site overlooks the volcanic plug of Loudoun Hill, seen here through the 'silhouette' in the sculpture.
