Elderslie is famous as the birthplace of Sir William Wallace (1274-1305), who defeated the English army at the Battle of Stirling Bridge.
A memorial to Scotland’s national hero sits on the traditional site of his home in Elderslie and is made up of a series of sculpted plaques around a column reminiscent of a market cross. The plaques illustrate the key moments in Wallace’s career as Knight of Elderslie and Guardian of Scotland.
An Elderslie must-visit is the award-winning Butchers Steak and Grill restaurant.
