There is an excellent choice of accommodation, from large hotels with spa facilities to national hotel chains, cosy cottages, B&Bs and canal barges.

Our new winter itineraries| are now available.

It is an area steeped in history with a wealth of attractions, including the world's only rotating boat-lift, a steam railway line, a baronial mansion, a castle, museums and galleries and superb parks and gardens.

Falkirk town centre boasts first class shopping facilities with its two large shopping centres, The Howgate and Callendar Square, plus a large retail park, a pedestrianised high street and a fine selection of local independent stores, boutiques and gift shops.

Throughout the area, an excellent selection of quality bars and restaurants provide the ideal setting to relax and unwind.
