The busy city of Stirling is just 5 miles away with its shopping and leisure facilities. The local skyline is dominated by Stirling Castle and the William Wallace Monument both visible from Broomhall Castle.
Some local attractions include Safari Parks, Whisky Tours and numerous Golf courses with St. Andrews and Gleneagles being within an hours drive. If you have any specific activities in mind, please let us know and we will try to source/arrange them for you.
A visit to Stirling Castle is an essential part of any visit to central Scotland. Its location rivals even Edinburgh Castle's for sheer magnificence as it sits on its high volcanic rock, visible for many miles in every direction. The Castle is in the care of Historic Scotland and is open to the public all year round, seven days a week.
May look strangely familiar, even to those who have never visited before. It depends on your taste in films: Doune Castle is a place of pilgrimage for Monty Python fans from all over the world who come to see the place where they filmed "Monty Python and the Holy Grail".
William Wallace Monument
Completed in 1869 after eight years' construction, the 220 feet high Wallace Monument sits prominently on the Abbey Craig two miles north of the city of Stirling itself. It was from this prominent hilltop in 1297 that William Wallace watched the English army approach across Stirling Bridge before leading the Scots into the battle of the same name: and victory. A fitting, and striking, location for the national monument to a national hero.
The Falkirk Wheel
The Falkirk wheel is the worlds first and only rotating boat lift.
Apart from being an engineering and design wonder the Falkirk wheel is a great day out for all. The visitor centre is set in the heart of natural amphitheatre of landscaped grounds,
where you can view the revolution of the wheel or go for a ride to see it from all angles.
