The grounds of the Bemersyde estate, near Melrose are a wonderful place for a walk. Head towards the River Tweed and you’ll find yourself staring up in awe at a quite frankly MASSIVE statue of William Wallace.
Built in 1814 out of red sandstone, the statue stands at a whopping 31 feet. Doesn’t look a thing like Mel Gibson though 😉
Unfortunately you’ll need a car for this one, as there is no public transport. There isn’t a proper address, but you can find a little car park on the B6536, (which is signposted ‘Wallace Statue’) from there, follow the path about 500m and you’ll find the statue.
