Statistical Account
031.09 A monument which was erected in the year 1810 by the inhabitants of Wallacestone (then called Redding Red Muir) to the memory of that celebrated hero, Sir William Wallace, but previous to its erection there lay on the Same Spot the remains of a Stone which was Said to have been carried by Wallace from the Stream which divides Polmont from Muiravonside, to a gentle eminence about 1½ mile to the South of the village of Redding, and upon which he Stood and witnessed the first battle of Falkirk in 1298 against Edward of England. The initials W.W. have been traced out on the stone by various people yet alive in the district, but the general opinion is that they were by far too modern for the period in which this event took place.
