Falkirk Town Heritage Trail

Discover Falkirk town centres history by following the Heritage Trail which links 25 sites of interest near the town centre. Each has a plaque with details of the location and its historical importance.

While the plaques are not numbered and can be visited in any order, the Falkirk Town Heritage Trail guide suggests two short tours each starting at the historic Steeple

There are also many interesting buildings on the routes which do not have plaques and visitors are recommended to look out for the many architectural gems which grace the town streets and wynds.
