Cycle in the HArTT of Scotland

A perfect day out for families or friends, this gentle 16 mile cycling route, (mostly flat!) takes in Falkirk’s key landmarks– the Falkirk Wheel, the Kelpies and Callendar House; in approximately 5 mile increments.

  • Arrive Falkirk Wheel.  Check out the Visitor centre, experience the Wheel by boat ride and learn about Roman history (guided walks are available on certain days, check for details).  Let the kids enjoy the fantastic play park and water play park.
  • Cycle along the Union Canal to Callendar House and Park.  Experience the architecture, rich history and contemporary art gallery within the house. Have lunch in the tearoom or a picnic in Callendar Park. 
  • Cycle to the Helix Park.  Have a guided tour (remember to pre-book) inside The Kelpies, giant 30m horses head sculptures and explore the cycle paths and play areas within the park.
  • Cycle back to the Falkirk Wheel and return bikes.
