WELCOME TO THE SOCIETY OF WILLIAM WALLACE

"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, flanking the entrance to Edinburgh Castle, was the statue which inadvertently gave the inspiration to the movie Braveheart. The scriptwriter Randall Wallace visited the castle whilst on vacation in Scotland, noticed the 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.

 
So far this year:

THE WALK FOR WALLACE ARCHIVE
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.

This website is respectfully dedicated to the memory of our friends
DAVID R ROSS, DUNCAN FENTON & LACHLAN McCANN
They who inspired so many of us now sit with the patriots who inspired them
