Heart of Scotland Glamping is ideally situated for all sorts of Scottish exploration, whether you’re visiting Falkirk area specifically, the wider Central belt, taking in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Stirling, or even heading further afield. We’re just two minutes from the M9 motorway, so we’re ideally located as a stop-off wherever you’re heading in Scotland.
For those visiting Falkirk, we’re right beside Antonine’s Wall, a fifteen minute walk from the Union Canal and the John Muir Way, less than four miles from the Kelpies and the Helix Park, and just a 15 minute drive from the Falkirk Wheel.
Urban explorers will find us central to lots of Scotland’s key attractions: we’re twenty minutes by road from the centre of Stirling, thirty to forty minutes (longer at rush hour) from the centres of Edinburgh and Glasgow, about fifty minutes from Perth and just over an hour from Dundee. By rail we’re about 25 minutes to Glasgow and Stirling, 35 minutes to Edinburgh, just over an hour to Perth and about 90 minutes to Dundee.
For those more interested in the fabulous Scottish scenery, we’re just 25 minutes from the foot of the Ochils, 35 minutes from the Trossachs and the Pentlands, around an hour from Loch Lomond and just over an hour from Pitlochry and St Andrews. Even the views from the hill just behind the village are pretty spectacular, giving a panoramic vista stretching from the Trossachs in the West, along the route of the River Forth (with the Ochils in the background) towards the famous ‘Three Bridges’ of the Forth Crossing in the East, and the rolling countryside of Fife, beyond.
If you’re a fan of the Outlander TV series, we’re perfectly located to follow in Jamie and Claire’s footsteps, with most of the key buildings being within a 35 minute drive and almost all the filming locations being within an hour! Take a look at VisitScotland’s map of Outlander locations and we sit more or less exactly in the middle of the triangle between numbers 4, 20 and 22.
