Our tour of Falkirk features a visit to the world famous Kelpies , the Falkirk Wheel and Callendar House.
Falkirk tours are available daily six days a week .
The Kelpies sculptures are made from 600 tonnes of steel and more than 10,000 special fixings, and tower over the nearby M9 motorway.
More than one million people have visited the Kelpies since they were completed in April 2014.
The Helix Park is a major attraction if you visit Falkirk , with 27 kilometres ( 17 miles ) of cycleways and footpaths , making it an ideal resort for families as well as walkers and cyclists. The Park is on the route of the new John Muir Way which goes from Dunbar , Muir’s home town , to the west coast of Scotland . The Helix Park in Grangemouth covers a greenspace of almost 300 hectares. Opening up Scotland’s canal network, the Helix also offers an outdoor recreational area filled with woodland, park, watersports lagoon, pathways, cycleways, and the hugely successful 30 metre landmark sculptures, the Kelpies, the largest equine sculptures in the world
The Helix project has transformed under-used land between Falkirk and Grangemouth into a thriving urban greenspace , “The Helix”. This includes a performance area, on which large scale events can be held, facilities for watersports provided by the construction of a large lagoon, all surrounded by play areas and high quality pathways.
The Kelpies have become a major tourist attraction in the same way the Falkirk Wheel is. Sculptor Andy Scott was on hand for the opening, along with Duke, a Clydesdale horse which was one of the models for the 30m (100ft) works. Kelpies gifts can be bought online or ask your driver for details.
Callendar House has just achieved a five-star rating from VisitScotland. The 14th century building, set within Callendar Park and opened to the public in 1996 after centuries as a family home with links to Mary Queen of Scots, has achieved the national tourism organisation’s top-quality award. The House dates back to the 14th century.
We stop for up to an hour at each location .
