The Wallace Room

This is our best room and would originally have been the upstairs drawing room. It is very spacious ( 35sqm ). It has a large bay window to the front of the house and a single large window to the side. The original ornate plaster ceiling and high skirting boards have been retained and help to add to the rooms character. The bed is a 4 poster super king with pelmet above. All furnishings are of excellent quality and enhance the period style of the room.

 

 

So who was Wallace?

William Wallace is one of Scotland’s most famous historical figures. He fought for Scotland’s independence over 700 years ago, leading his army in raids on English forces and in major battles at Stirling Bridge and Falkirk. He was eventually captured and taken to London where he was executed in a brutal manner by King Edward I “Longshanks”. Wallace’s brave struggle has been an inspiration to many over the years and his refusal to give up in the face of overwhelming odds has assured his place in the hearts and minds of Scots the world over.
