Here are a few of our sightseeing suggestions:

Campsie Glen & Clachan of Campsie
Well worth a visit: the beauty of the Glen and the hills above are an attraction in themselves. However, if you are interested in the past, this is the area to see clearly how the Campsies were laid down by volcanic action over different periods.

canal photo Forth and Clyde Canal
Restored to working order and re-opened in May 2001. There are pleasant walks along its banks. The canal flows through Kirkintilloch our local large town with a population of around 21,000. The name is a corruption of Gaelic meaning "Fort at the end of the ridge" and today that location is Peel Park, Kirkintilloch, at the rear of the Auld Kirk Museum.
Also found in Kirkintilloch is the Caurunie Soap Company which was founded in 1922. You can still see its glycerine based soaps being made today! For further information, visit www.caurnie.com

Glengoyne Distillery
See how the favourite Scottish 'tipple' is distilled - and taste it!

Antonine Wall
The Roman Wall which stretches right across Central Scotland is near to us and sites of Roman forts can be seen locally. Roman artefacts can also be found in the Hunterian Museum at Glasgow University, and Callendar house, Falkirk.

The Trossachs
Visit beautiful Rob Roy country. Sail on Loch Katrine on the S.S. Sir Walter Scott (and see the Clan McGregor graveyard). Travel on to Callander where there is much to see and do, including the Rob Roy and Trossachs Visitor Centre.

Mugdock Country Park
This park is close to Lennoxtown and has miles of countryside and woodland trails - with tea-room for the foot weary! Visit the park's web site for more information.

Loch Lomond and Ben Lomond
Both are within easy reach and, given good weather, provide some of Scotland's most stunning views.

Robert the Bruce

Historic Stirling

Stirling is called the Gateway to the Highlands and the centre of Braveheart Country. See the Bannockburn Memorial (pictured left), Stirling Castle, Wallace Monument (pictured right), the Old Jail and many other visitor attractions.

William Wallace

Edinburgh
Scotland's Capital and home of the Tattoo offers many visitor attractions: The Royal Mile, Holyrood House, Scottish Parliament, Edinburgh Castle, National History Museum, etc.

Glasgow Glasgow
Scotland's largest city which is simply bursting with things to do and see: architecture, murder/ghost walks, open-topped bus tours of the city, museums and art galleries (pictured left), cinemas, theatres, parks and the River Clyde Walkway.

Falkirk
The town is well worth a visit and the restoration of Callander House is magnificent! Walk in and view working Victorian Kitchens! In nearby Camelon, see the magnificient Falkirk Wheel, a boat lift which transfers boats from one canal level to another, thus doing away with several locks. Travel on it and experience it for yourself!

New Lanark
The restored mills originally operated by the water at the Falls of Clyde are well worth the visit as is the 'Annie McLeod' experience showing how folk lived in New Lanark when it was built.

Coatbridge
Visit the noisiest museum in Scotland at Summerlee - the Heritage Museum built on the old Iron Works site beside the canal. This museum includes a working electric tram and a simulated coal mine.

Blantyre
Just off the M74, the home of the famous African explorer and missionary, David Livingstone, is well worth a visit.

Bo'ness
This is worth a visit for its working steam trains and at the end of the track in Kinneil there is the chance to walk through an abandoned clay mine.

Burns Country
Drive down the Ayrshire coast for great scenes of the Clyde Estuary. Head for Alloway where Burns Cottage has been restored. The home of our national Bard is well worth seeing, as is the nearby town of Ayr.

"AuId Ayr wham ne'er a town surpasses,
for honest men and bonie Iassies
"

While in the area, call and see Culzean Castle (pictured right) where President Eisenhower had an apartment.
