Knock on History's Door, a special evening event at The National Wallace Monument, in Stirling, will see the doors to the famous Scottish landmark opened after hours for an exclusive tour this month.

With only 25 tickets available for each night, this unique experience offers guests access to explore the exhibitions and see the breathtaking views in a new light.  

Visitors are invited to climb the 246 stairs to discover the life and legacy of William Wallace inside the Monument built in his honour, and to meet historical characters along the way with live actor performances.

Archaeologist and Honorary Research Fellow at Stirling University Dr. Murray Cook will also be participating each evening, providing expert insight into the city's rich history and the Monument's surrounding area of the Abbey Craig.

The visit to the National Wallace Monument after hours will also include the opportunity to enjoy the incredible panoramic views of Central Scotland from the Crown.

Ken Thomson, marketing manager at Stirling District Tourism, the charity that operates the Monument, said: "There are so many different ways of enjoying a visit to the Monument, with a packed programme of live entertainment available throughout the year - and now this special evening tour will allow visitors to see the building from a new perspective, and at a different time of day."

The exclusive tours take place on Friday and Saturday, August 11-12.
