Falkirk and the surrounding area are steeped in history.

Allow yourself to become absorbed by the atmosphere, whilst visiting the magnificent Stirling Castle, the Wallace Monument and The Battle of Bannockburn Experience, and then recharge your batteries in one of the many cafés, restaurants or pubs.
Falkirk is also home to the world’s only fully rotating boat lift, connecting the Forth and Clyde Canal with the Union Canal, and also is home to The Kelpies @ Helix Park – the largest Equine statues in the world!
