The Society of William Wallace


The site is currently under major reconstruction - please bear with us as there are over a year's worth of updates to add...

"I have brought you to the ring, now dance the best you can!"
Words shouted by Wallace to the Scottish army at the Battle of Falkirk on the 22nd of July 1298 as the English cavalry began to charge.
"This statue of William Wallace which flanks the entrance to Edinburgh Castle was the statue that inadvertently gave the inspiration to the movie Braveheart". The scriptwriter Randall Wallace visited the castle whilst on vacation in Scotland, noticed this statue, and was intrigued as the subject had the same second name as his own.
He asked one of the staff who this famous Wallace was, and was quite simply told;
"That sir, is our greatest hero!"
This sent Randall on a quest to discover all he could about this man called William Wallace, and resulted in "Braveheart" being released in 1995.
A small gathering was held at Cambuskenneth Abbey at 7pm on the evening of 23rd August this year, to lay a single white rose tribute to the alleged resting place of part of Wallace's body.
Wallace Day 2017 was held on Saturday 19th August this year. The march took place in extremely inclement weather, and speeches were held at the hall again as opposed to at the monument. An evening of entertainment followed, provided by Clann an Drumma (who also led the march), Brina, and the Graham Brown Band.
The Society of William Wallace held our 10th anniversary parade and commemoration in Falkirk on Saturday 22nd July.
We are hard at work behind the scenes bringing the site up to date. Currently the archives for 2016 are being rebuilt. Should any obvious errors be noticed, please email the webmaster (address at foot of the page) with exact details of the problem. Please also note that at present, all of our merchandise is undergoing a stock taking, and may be unavailable for a spell. Please contact the Merchandising Officer with any queries. There will be a general announcement when this all goes on-line again. Thank you for your patience meantime.
In here you'll find some things that we got up to stretching back to David's walk for Wallace in 2005.

Some of the waist lines and hair lines have changed a bit, and there are some faces that are sadly no longer with us, but please have a look and take a wee trip down memory lane.

If you have any old photos of any events we've attended or anything you'd like to share with us then please send them in - we'd love to see them.
