Located in the central Lowlands region of Scotland, Falkirk sits in the Forth valley, roughly equidistant from both Edinburgh and Scotland, the nation’s two main settlements.
Historically a centre of steel and iron industry in Scotland, Falkirk has in recent years become a hub of retail and tourism in the area.
The Kelpies are a pair of 30-metre-high horse sculptures that stand next to a newly constructed extension to the Forth and Clyde Canal. The Helix is a new parkland area created to connect 16 communities in the Falkirk Council Area. Attracting visitors from across the country, the park holds a range of arts events and is home to an excellent homemade ice cream bar.
Callendar House is a mansion set in the grounds of Callendar Park in Falkirk. The architecture is unique in that it fuses the style of a classic French chateau with Scottish baronial.
