William Wallace

(Main plaque:)
This memorial erected 1900 A.D. By public subscription is to mark the site of the house in which the hero of Scotland was basely betrayed and captured about midnight on 5th August 1305 when alone with his faithful friend and co patriot Kerlie Who was slain.
Wallace's heroic patriotism as conspicuous in his death as in his life so roused and inspired his country that within nine years of his betrayal the work of his life was crowned with victory and Scotland's independence regained on the Field of Bannockburn.

(On the Cross:)

(Base of Cross:)

(Top plaque:)
"Dico Tibi Verum Libertas Optima Rerum Nunquam Servili Sub Nexu Vivito Fili" Taught to Wallace in his boyhood. (Latin translation as: "My Son, Freedom is best, I tell thee true, of all things to be won. Then never live within the Bond of Slavery.")

(Right plaque:)
"We are not here to sue for peace but to fight for the freedom of our country" Wallace at Stirling Bridge
