    Falkirk Off The Beaten Path

    It is difficult to know where to place this tip as the location in question is pretty much in the middle of nowhere in Central Scotland. I have decided on Falkirk as it is situated in that Council area.A friend had told me about a really strange place called the Pineapple in Central Scotland. A pineapple in the Scottish climate? That surprised me....

    Callander Things to Do

    Callander's main street was very quiet when we visited, most of the shops were still closed and there were not many people around, apart from some workers who worked on one of the construction sites on the road. The street runs from the northwest to the southeast and is lined by traditional houses made of rough stones, and many shops. Some of the...

  • Mercat Cross

    Callander Things to Do

    Callander's mercat cross is located in Ancaster Square, opposite of St Kessog's Church, and serves as the war memorial of the town. It looks like a traditional mercat cross with an animal or another creature on top, but I was not able to distinguish what it was. Neither was it possible to find out if this is the original mercat cross of the town...

    The visitor centre has a tourist board shop at ground level, information on Scotland and the various Clans on the second floor and a small cinema on the third that gives an explanation of the spread of Christianity in Scotland.

    Larbert Restaurants

    The main selling point is the place. The conceit is that you are outside, though inside. So a fake starry sky, fake trees, fake waterfalls and fake buildings around the outside of the main dining area, some of which are mini themed areas themselves. The food - ah well. Actually it is pretty reasonable and as with many UK places pretty much a grab...
