Just a statue. But once you're there check out all the charity shops on Rosemount Viaduct!

Nice statue, good view of Union Terrace Park. A bit difficult to get a good picture with William Wallace as there is a street in between where you need to stand in front, but overall definitely worth a visit if you are in Aberdeen.

As an Englishman I stood underneath this statue and did not feel uncomfortable. It is sad that he lost, but I admire his noble quest to prevent it being possible for me to be here.
