Glasgow North East

Location: Glasgow Guide / Glasgow Images / Glasgow's Wallace Monument  


    INSCRIPTION ON MONUMENT

    This memorial erected in 1900AD 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 the 5th August 1305, when alone with his faithful friend Kerlie who was slain.

    Wallace's heroic patriotism, as precious in his death as in his life, so raised and inspired his country that within nine years of his betrayal the work of his life was crowned with victory - and Scotland's independence - on the field of Bannockburn.


    "DICO TIBI VERUM, LIBERTAS OPTMA RERUM;
    NUNQUAM SERVILI SUB NEXU VIVITO, FILI"

    I tell you true, freedom is the best of things;
    never lie within the bonds of slavery, my son.

    Taught to Wallace in his boyhood.


    Who dared to nobly stem tyrannic pride or nobly die

    Robert Burns.
