The Argentinian folk metal band Skiltron released the tribute song On the Trail of David Ross on their 2013 album Into the Battleground. The song makes specific mention of the Walk for Wallace.


This letter was eventually returned to Scotland on 12 January 2012 and will be on display to the people of Scotland at a free exhibition which will run from 10 to 31 August at the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh.


David R. Ross died on 2 January 2010 in his home in East Kilbride due to a heart attack.

After David R. Ross's death, The Society for William Wallace decided to include his image in its new flag in permanent memory. This flag was displayed for the first time on 21 August 2010, at the William Wallace Memorial Day in Elderslie.


The fourth and last book in the series was On the Trail of Scotland's History, published in 2008.


In 2005, to commemorate the 700th anniversary of the capture and subsequent execution of William Wallace, Ross undertook a 450-mile solo march along the path most likely taken by Wallace from the location in which he was captured to London where he was hanged, drawn and quartered.

He left Robroyston (now a suburb of Glasgow) on 3 August 2005, the anniversary of the date in which Wallace was taken by John de Menteith, after the yearly function organised by The Society of William Wallace to reach London on the evening of the 22nd of the same month - the same date in which Wallace entered the English capital city. His only support was a van in which he slept and took his meals.

As William Wallace never received a funeral or a proper burial (as was then the custom for those accused of high treason), David R. Ross and The Society of William Wallace organised, on 23 August 2005 (the 700th anniversary of Wallace's execution), a full memorial function to commemorate the life of the Scottish hero.


Outwith the "on the trail of" series - but still linked to Scottish history and places - Ross published A Passion for Scotland in 2003, a generic (but deeply heart-felt) history of the country; Desire Lines: A Journey Around Scotland and Through Her History (2004), in which Ross guides the reader "off the beaten path" and to the less renowned corners of Scotland; For Freedom: The Last Days of William Wallace (2007) in which he recounts the last week in the life of the hero, from his capture to his execution, and the repercussions of those events in history, and James the Good: The Black Douglas, dedicated to the story of the Scottish hero and soldier, in 2008.


The third book in the "on the trail of" series was On the Trail of Bonnie Prince Charlie, published in 2001.


In the mid-1990s, during a lecture at the University of Glasgow that Ross was attending, Dr. Elspeth King mentioned that a book listing all the sites in Scotland related to the life of William Wallace had never been published; this inspired Ross to write On the Trail of William Wallace, that was published in 1999 by the Edinburgh-based Luath Press.


David R. Ross was twice divorced and had a daughter named Kimberley, born in 1987.


On the 700th anniversary of Wallace's capture and subsequent execution he undertook a 450-mile walk in Wallace's honour.
