Wallace’s Cave is situated in Roslin Glen, in Midlothian, Scotland. It is also known as Hawthornden Castle Cave, after Hawthornden Castle which is nearby. It takes its name from William Wallace, the Scottish national hero, who participated in the Battle of Rosslyn, which took place close to the cave on 24 February 1303. 8,000 Scots, led by John Comyn, faced an English army numbering 30,000. This Battle ended in victory for the Scots, and gave the country new hope for independence from England.
