Exploring the area

The cottages are situated in extensive garden and woodlands grounds which guests are welcome to walk in. The local area is fantastic for walks and is completely steeped in history. The towpath on the Forth & Clyde canal is only 2 miles away which is ideal for cycle day-trips and connects with the Falkirk Wheel and the Kelpies. For day-trips it is a half-hour drive to the Trossachs and Loch Lomond and the cities of Glasgow Edinburgh and Stirling are all within very easy reach. The station is around 10 minutes away and trains every half-hour run to Glasgow (in 20 mins) and Edinburgh (in 30 mins)
