The Press and Journal (North-East) - - NEWS -

An Ed­in­burgh tourist at­trac­tion is to launch a cam­paign to in­tro­duce a new na­tional hol­i­day to Wil­liam Wal­lace.

Re­search by the Ed­in­burgh Dun­geon found the ma­jor­ity of Scots (72%), would sup­port a day to cel­e­brate Wil­liam Wal­lace with 42% declar­ing him “the bravest Scot ever”.

More than a third of peo­ple who took part in the study (38%) also say they have more of an affin­ity with Wal­lace than St An­drew.

A to­tal of 500 peo­ple across Scot­land over 16 took part in the sur­vey which was con­ducted on­line by Cen­suswide.

The Ed­in­burgh Dun­geon will launch a cam­paign for a new na­tional hol­i­day to mark Scot­land’s Brave­heart.

Votes will be taken via so­cial me­dia polls @Ed­inDun­geon for the Na­tional Wal­lace Day to take place an­nu­ally on Au­gust 23.
