Campaign to "Save the Monument" Launched

A group of William Wallace enthusiasts have set out to save and preserve the site where the Scottish hero was betrayed. The site, near Glasgow, has become a dumping ground and popular haunt of drug users.

The area, which includes the spot where Wallace was captured, resulting in his death in the Tower of London, is marked by a simple stone obelisk. If the "Save the Monument" campaign is successful, the spot would be preserved as an international heritage site.
