Falkirk is about an hour’s drive from any of our self-catering holiday cottages and as well as Callender House there are the Kelpies (30 metre high sculptures) and the Falkirk Wheel boat lift located on the Forth and Clyde canal to visit.
If you are planning a visit to central Scotland in one of our self-catering holiday cottages then a trip to any of these Falkirk based attractions would provide an interesting family day out.
