Wallace's Monument
The granite Celtic cross was erected by public subscription in 1900. It marks the site of the house where, according to legend, the Scottish patriot William Wallace was betrayed and captured in August 1305. Wallace was sent to the Tower of London, where he was hung, drawn and quartered.
