The Guardians of Scotland Trust is constituted as a registered charity comprised of representation from the Andrew de Moray Project, the Society of William Wallace, and to consistently include Stirling Council’s Provost, and a nominated councilor.
Our public art programme aims to effect representation of De Moray and Wallace in authentic position at Stirling Bridge using public art as a catalyst to further develop and recognise the significance of this pivotal crossing point in Scottish history. We will offer to visitors renewed perspective at this famous heritage site by offering factual information, complemented by guided tours. These ambitious plans depend entirely on public and private support over the coming months. Anyone can be involved. Individual donations are most welcome and the project can offer magnificent marketing incentives to businesses, from the smallest to biggest, through national and international publicity.
Dauvit Broun, Professor of Scottish History at the University of Glasgow, has said; 'It is very important that Andrew Murray and William Wallace are commemorated together at Stirling Bridge. Not only should Murray's role as the senior partner with Wallace in this crucial battle be recognised, but so, too, should Wallace's willingness to work with other leaders in defeating Edward I's government in Scotland. This artwork will be the first to do this in such a prominent place. It represents a very significant step towards promoting a more complete public understanding of Wallace.'
