Culross Palace

Reviewed By johnkfenwick - Larkhall, United Kingdom

Not only is the Palace well worth visiting but so is the village of Culross. Externally you soon realise that this is not a Palace at all, but all will soon be explained by the excellent guides. Once you have watched the short introductory video presentation (recommended) you are free to wander around the interior and Gardens at your on pace. The rooms give a real feel to what living here would have been like in days gone by and the information provided by the guides makes it all the more real. For me one of the best revelations was the roof tiles and how the design fitted to the strapping. A small thing I know but i found it fascinating. Taking the town tour is also a must to visit the town house and Bishop Leightons study and to see the benefits carried out by the Little Houses Improvement Scheme. Highly recommended and well worth spending the day here.

Bo'ness and Kinneil Railway

This hidden gem, only 40 minutes drive from Glasgow and Edinburgh, is located in the historic town of Bo’ness. Our friendly staff will welcome you aboard one of our heritage steam or diesel-hauled trains and wish you a pleasant journey. The train travels along the shore of the Firth of Forth with views of the majestic Ochil Hills, before climbing a tree-lined gradient, passing woodland, wild flowers and Waterfalls to the country station of Birkhill. Alight here to take a stroll in the ancient woodlands of the Avon Gorge.Beyond Birkhill, the train crosses the River Avon Viaduct to Manuel beside the Edinburgh to Glasgow railway line. Back at Bo’ness, visit the Museum of Scottish Railways, extended in 2012 with the addition of a 16,000 sq. ft. train shed to house the last remaining "Glasgow Blue Train", a recently restored Class 126 Diesel Multiple Unit and several other heritage items of rolling stock. In the main exhibition hall, operate a railway signal and points, climb aboard heritage locomotives and learn about the making, operating and using of Scottish Railways through the ages. Take time to sort some letters in the Post Office Sorting Van and view the classic video "Night Mail". Free parking, Station Buffet and Gift Shop.

Train decked out for Christmas. Nice and clean and warm too!
Conductor fellow handed out Reindeer hats and there was a song sheet on the table. We were in coach A, so saw santa first! Entertained by a magician. Enjoyed a sing song lead by a choir master and a man playing an accordion - lovely!
Back at the station we had complementary tea and a warm mince pie.
There was a model railway and a museum open too - a very enjoyable visit.
Well done to all the volunteers - a happy Christmas to you all!

Devilla Forest

Reviewed By falkirklady2015 - Falkirk District, United Kingdom

Wonderful walking in Devilla Forest. Went off main paths and explored deeper in forest and were delighted with what we saw. Enchanting wildlife and flora with beautiful views. Many varieties of birds including a heron, ducks and swans. All paths are well maintained but worth going off track for wee gems. Peaceful, tranquil and enchanting place

The Kelpies

Reviewed By J0HNG67 - Glasgow, United Kingdom

I'd driven past the Kelpies on the adjacent M9 many times but never stopped in so on a return journey from St Andrews we decided to have a look round. I was expecting to spend 10mins but we ended up walking round for a couple of hours and could have stayed longer. The sculptures are amazing and there is a nice visitor centre with interesting exhibits and a restaurant as well as a couple of snack bars round the water feature.

Linlithgow Palace

The magnificent ruin of a great Royal Palace set in its own park and beside Linlithgow Loch. A favoured residence of the Stewart kings and queens from James I (1406-37) onward. Building work commissioned by James I, III, IV, V and VI can be seen. The great hall and chapel are particularly fine. James V (1512) and Mary Queen of Scots (1542) were both born here. Surfaces inside the Palace are mainly stone slabs and small cobbles in the courtyard. The ticket office, shop and courtyard are accessible to visitors with disabilities. More mobile visitors should be able to access the first floor which forms the main part of the property. Access is available to Linlithgow Loch and extensive peel (park).

We have visited Linlithgow Palace many times and return most months.
The views from the outside are equal to the views from inside.
The friendly staff will give you a warm welcome and are very knowledgeable on the history of the building and the historical events
The Palace setting next to Linlithgow Loch is just amazing at any time of the year, parking is limited at busy times but there is plenty of parking just a short walk away. There is also good links by train and bus if you want to use public transport
Treat yourself to a pleasant walk around the Loch , it is about 2.5 Miles, the views of the Palace will take your breath away

Heavy snow fall and a morning walk through the park with the snow laden trees quite stunning when the sun hits them . A lot of dog walkers out today and photographers with the same idea as me .I have my small bag of peanuts to attract the squirrels and robins . I was not disappointed

Royal Burgh of Culross

Reviewed By JOHN04LEEDS - Berwick upon Tweed, United Kingdom

Very pleasantly surprised by just how much there was to see - many of the houses have been restored to their original state circa 1650s thanks in part to the National Trust for Scotland and the Small Houses scheme. Almost like being in a film set - if you are a fan of Outlander don't miss this as many scenes were filmed here - although we are not there was more than enough to interest us. Also, there are lovely walks on the banks of the Firth of Forth with great views of the estuary, the three iconic Forth Bridges and surrounding countryside. Well worth visiting if you are in the area.

The Hippodrome

This fantastic pre-art deco picture palace was first opened in 1912. For decades it was the place to see the latest Hollywood and British blockbusters. It closed in the 1980’s after a short spell as a bingo hall. Now – thanks to a £2.1 million restoration project – the Hippodrome is open again, lovingly restored to its 1926 heyday. With a great program of blockbusters, art house and classic favorites, there’s bound to be something for everyone.

I contacted Steve over a year ago while researching our trip to Scotland. While I am an avid Outlander fan, my husband and our traveling companions are not. Steve was absolutely amazing in creating a tour that satisfied all of us! While throwing in a couple of other movie references as well. His knowledge of Scotland history and the stories he told on our journeys brought Scotland's history to life. Everything was fascinating and he was always ready to answer any question we had. Thank you Steve, for the best two days of our trip!!

Kincardine Bridge

Reviewed By coppergrease - Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Kincardine bridge in its day was a miracle of engineering. It was the longest swing bridge of its type in the world. It's a good looking bridge too from the river.
It's been neglected, it's due a heavy refurbishment. I understand it's no longer able to swing, needs a coat of paint and offers no tourist guidance. In fact I don't think I've even seen a sign.
I still think it's a pretty bridge, but unless you have a specific interest it's not really a destination. It does sit on the Fife coastal walk route.
