Food Scene
Excellent for coffee and cakes, breakfast or even a light lunch. One visitor described their bacon and black pudding roll for breakfast as the best in the universe!! There are homemade scones everyday as well as yummy soup for lunch - well worth a visit and be sure to ask for Ainslie who runs it and will make you truly welcome.

Sightseeing
The Kelpies are truly impressive and well worth a visit. constructed just three-years-ago they are two 30-metre-high horse head sculptures built of structural steel with a stainless steel cladding. Weighing 300 tonnes each they are intended to celebrate the horse’s role in industry and agriculture as well as the obvious association with the canals as tow horses. They are situated in Helix park which provides activities such as cycling, walking, watersports and much more. they have become an iconic landmark clearly visible from the M9 motorway and beautifully lit up at night.

It is just a 4 minute drive between the Falkirk wheel and the Kelpies so the two together make a great day out. The Falkirk Wheel , a boat lift which connects the Forth and Union with the Clyde canal, is a real feat of engineering. Replacing a series of old locks, it is the world’s only rotating boat lift. It is well worth taking an hour-long boat round trip on the canals which involves an ascent and descent through the wheel.

Stirling Castle is one the biggest and most well-known castles in Scotland. It is built upon Castle Hill, a massive naturally forming crag with steep cliffs on three sides. The first records of Stirling Castle come from the 12th century. It is still the HQ of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders Infantry Regiment, although no troops are based there. Historically It was fought over and passed between the Scots and English many times. If you walk to the top of the tract opposite the cottage you can see Stirling Castle on a clear day.

One of Scotland's most popular nature reserves, this Vane Farm reserve is teeming with wildlife and Climb the trail through the woodland to the top of Vane Hill for a spectacular view over the Kinross-shire hills and countryside, or meander down to the wetland trail where three hides allow you to get really close to nature. In the summer, you could see ospreys on the loch, and in the winter, thousands of pink-footed geese, swans and ducks make the reserve their home.

Just over an hour's drive, a trip to House of Bruar is a real must and a great day out. Often described as the Harrods of the North it has a huge range of clothing, food, gifts and paintings - a real top class department store. The drive up the A9 is also very scenic AND they have a great restaurant for lunch. But this is not the place to go if you are watching the pennies!!
