Wallace sword has new home as monument refurbishment is completed
The new case is amid a £350,000 refurbishment of the Wallace Monument
The Wallace Monument is re-opening after it's biggest refurbishment in more than one hundred years, with a new home for the hero's giant sword.
A total of £350,000 has been spent making the Gothic-style tower more interactive.
At the heart of the new display is Wallace's famous sword, which was returned to the monument this week after being stored in a secret location.
Stone left over from the construction of the monument back in the 1860's has been used to create an impressive new display case for the 5ft 6in claymore.
There's no concrete evidence that it was ever used by Wallace, but historians say it's still an important relic.
The monument re-opens on Saturday.
