  • Stirling Castle

    Stirling Things to Do

    We arrived at Stirling Castle right when it opened at 9:30am, showed them our Historic Scotland Exporer Passes which got us fast track and walked into the castle. It was a drizzly morning so we popped inside one of the interior parts that was open to wait for the included tour to start. The tours last for just under an hour and take you around the...

  • City Walls Pub

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Stirling Restaurants

    This cavernous pub serves pretty standard pub grub in a nice location right in the centre of the city, at the base of the city walls. Good food at reasonable prices, great if you are on a budget. They had special offers on too, which made it even more reasonable. I had scampi & chips followed by a yummy chocolate fudge cake. I like my pub grub...

  • The Main Street

    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...

    Falkirk Things to Do

    We took the opportunity to visit The Falkirk Wheel during our Glasgow trip and we are so glad we did! We access the wheel from Falkirk High Station via the Union Canal. On our arrival we booked our boat trip at the visitors centre (Tip: book soon as you arrive as they are very popular!) and we were lucky to get the time we wanted as it was very...

  • Falkirk High Railway Station

    Falkirk Transportation

    We travelled to Falkirk High Railway Station for our walk via the Union Canal (signposted and situated behind the station) to the Falkirk Wheel. We did get lost at first but a friendly guy in the town centre put us in the right direction and we were on our way. The station serves trains from Glasgow and Edinburgh and it takes approximately 40...

    If you would like to sample traditional good Scottish pub food in the town, this is the place to come. The pub has a small restaurant area so you won't feel crowded out and your service will be a bit more personal than in a larger place.A good choice of traditional starters and favourite Scottish main courses such as steak pie,...

    Killin Things to Do

    These cottages are some of the oldest cottages in the village. They date back to the 1700's. If you look beneath the paint on the cottage you'll see the outlines in the stones. Early buildings were made from the most readily local stone. Fields and river beds were useful sources of rubble for the walls. If you look closely you'll see the irregular...
