“150 years later the Monument has become an internationally recognised symbol of Wallace’s passion and status, and it is proudly revered by everyone who holds Wallace in high esteem.

Wallace Wha Hae is an exciting way for everyone to join the 150th anniversary celebrations.  We’re extremely grateful for the support we’ve received which has helped to make this event possible.”
