Glasgow has more parkland than any other British city, and among the pick of the green spaces are the Botanic Gardens, Glasgow Green, Kelvingrove Park and Greenbank House and Gardens in the suburbs. Day trips are available along the River Clyde from close to the city centre, onboard the paddle steamer Waverley. Glasgow University, Clyde Auditorium, Glasgow Cathedral, the Glasgow school of Art and City Chambers are among the buildings of architectural interest.

The spring-time Glasgow International Comedy Festival is held annually and regular stand-up can be experienced at Jongleurs, The Stand and other clubs throughout the city. Other annual festivals include The West End Festival, the Glasgow International Jazz festival and the Merchant City Festival. There are regular music concerts and theatre productions in the city''s many live-performance venues.

  • Elm Cottage


    Ref: UK5189
    Discover this welcoming detached holiday cottage in a quiet parkland setting, ideal for friends and family to explore the area. It is only a few minutes’ drive from the town centre, where there are restaurants to suit all tastes, swimming pools, sport centres, multiplex cinema, theatre, museum, pubs and shops. Falkirk is very much a year round destination; the perfect place for the perfect holiday! The area immediately surrounding the cottage is rich in history. It sits on the Bantaskine Estate and was originally the gardener’s lodge. The old house is no longer there, but its large stained glass window is now part of the shopping centre.

    Bantaskine Estate was home to one of Falkirk’s best known and influential Victorians, John Wilson. At the age of 21, John took over his father’s coal pit business. His father Robert had started the successful business in Banton near Kilsyth and expanded to South Bantaskine in 1828 where there were rich coal seams. His family had links to the area as they had taken part on the Jacobite side of the 1746 battle fought over the same land. John married Mary Russell in 1848, daughter of James Russell of Arnotdale, the leading lawyer in Falkirk. As a mark of his successful business and career, South Bantaskine House was built around 1860. The Ballatines of Edinburgh were commissioned to produce stained glass windows, which can now be seen in the Howgate Centre. Unfortunately John and Mary’s only son died from tuberculosis at the young age of 22. However, his ’forty foot of daughters’ carried on the family business when John died in 1881. Never married, Bessie, Nell and Georgina lived in the house and continued to help Falkirk until their deaths. The house was used by Polish officers during the war but unfortunately after the nationalisation of the coal mines, the house stayed empty until it was finally demolished. The walled garden still remains and there are many pleasant walks around the estate woodlands and along the Union Canal. The John Muir Way, the coast to coast route passes right next to the cottage.

    There are wonderful attractions to visit including the incredible Kelpies and the Falkirk Wheel, and a little further afield are Linlithgow, Stirling and The Trossachs and Loch Lomond National Park. There are numerous golf courses locally and even the Gleneagles course is only 45 minutes away. You do not have to venture far, as from your front door there are cycle and footpaths through the countryside, and you can join the pathways along the Forth and Clyde Canal, or just relax in the enclosed garden, a great place where children can play. The railway station has regular trains to Glasgow, Edinburgh and Stirling. Linlithgow is 10 miles away, Stirling 12 miles, Glasgow, 24 miles and Edinburgh, 27 miles.
