Bus to Falkirk Wheel and Callender House

by cathy9510usa

Hi,

I'm making a day trip by train to Falkirk arriving at Grahamston Station and leaving from High Street Station. I'd like to take a bus to the Falkirk Wheel and, if I have time, see the Callender House. I wouldn't mind walking to the latter from the center of town if that's possible. Can anyone tell me if there are buses to these sites? Thank you very much.

Bus line 3 (Red Line) goes to the Wheel visitor centre from central Falkirk every 15 minutes - takes 15 minutes as it wends through the schemes.

Bus lines 1/2 (Blue Line) leave alternate 10 minutes from the centre to the Wheel park and ride. This takes a notional 8 minutes (highly traffic dependant) as it takes the main road towards Glasgow. There is then a walk of 3/4 minutes to the Wheel. This has the advantage of giving you a good view of the Wheel as you walk up.

Both lines leave from Upper Newmarket St which is about 2 minutes walk uphill from Grahamston. The stances are outside the red stone kirk.

Callander House and park are an easy walk from the centre. I think there is a bus to the high flats beside the park (because they are full of pensioners) but I couldn't find a timetable, and you don't really need the bus.

Where are you coming from? Glasgow or Edinburgh? If you are not in a hurry a First Bus day ticket would only cost £5.50, I think. And from Glasgow, passes the Wheel. (Though I like the train as well).

Many thanks for your reply. I already bought my train ticket (Newcastle to Falkirk via Edinburgh), otherwise I'd have considered the bus option. Sounds like I'll find it easy to get around. Thanks again.

Travel Tips for Falkirk

watching boats climb

by ndahl

Falkirk would seem an unlikely place to find what is fast becoming a major tourist attraction, but tourist attraction there is.
Scotlands' network of canals, that once linked edinburgh and Glasgow, rivers Clyde and Forth and provided a route inland for the delivery of goods from around the world as well as providing a fast route from the atlantic to the north sea had fallen into disuse, become silted up or just covered over.
Trains and trucks had replaced pleasure steamers and cargo boats.
British waterways, in association with other bodies have begun a process of renovation and modernisation of these neglected watery arteries and with the introduction of the falkirk wheel are turning derelict and dangerous stagnant areas into fresh and pleasing recreational areas throughout the central belt of scotland

Callendar House - Antonine Wall

by stevezero

Callendar House Park, also contains sections of ditch of the Antonine Wall. Built by the Romans in AD 138, it originally stretched from thr Firth of Forth to the Firth of Clyde. Stretcges of the wall can also be seen in other places.

"Place to live"

Falkirk...Medium-sized town in Central Scotland, conveniently close to both Edinburgh and Glasgow. Home to - er - the Wheel (see other entries). Rich industrial heritage from coal-mining and iron-founding, both sadly now departed. Interesting Roman remains, and a compact and useful shopping centre.
