National Wallace holiday campaign
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.
