What’s on Falkirk and the Forth Valley
A busy commercial centre, Falkirk was once the northernmost frontier of the Roman Empire and played a major role in Scotland’s Industrial Revolution. Its restored canals offer walking or cycling along the towpaths and boat trips, and the Bo’ness and Kinneil Steam Railway provides a delightful glimpse into a bygone age.
