Ideally situated in open countryside on a farm with panoramic views.
Excellent touring base for Glasgow, Stirling and Edinburgh.
Close to The Kelpies and the Falkirk Wheel.

If you are interested in history, you may like to know that The Battle of Falkirk Muir (January 1746) was the last Jacobite success of any importance (it is hoped the Falkirk Muir Battlefield Trail will be ready for visitors in 2018).

Stay for a week at our B&B or self catering accommodation, and you can take 7 day trips to explore different areas of Scotland:
Palacerigg Country Park is about 3 miles away and is the "countryside for wildlife and for people" and this has been Palacerigg's aim since the early 1970s as hundreds of thousands of mainly native trees were established over an upland livestock farm. Palacerigg today is the largest forest sanctuary in central Scotland, home to thriving wild populations of roe deer, badgers, hares and owls. Over the expanses of heather moorland and farming fields, visitors can watch red deer, fallow deer, reindeer, as well as ancient White Park cattle, rare breeds of sheep and ponies.
Bird watchers will be interested to know that a flock of about 250 Scandinavian Bean Geese can usually be seen from around October until the end of January on the Slamannan plateau between Falkirk and Cumbernauld.
