Weedingshall is on the outskirts of Falkirk, right in the heart of Central Scotland. Falkirk was recently voted the ‘Best Walking Neighbourhood’ in the UK, and on visiting Weedingshall you will see why. As well as being nestled in woodland, we are right beside the beautiful Gray Buchannan Park (an Outlander filming location!) and Polmont Burn. Indeed, for Outlander fans not only is one filming location literally on our doorstep, but eight other key filming locations are within just a few miles of Weedingshall (just ask us for a local trail!).
Falkirk is famous for being home to the Kelpies and Helix Park, and other wonderful attractions on our doorstep include the Falkirk Wheel, Callendar House, the Antonine Wall, and two new distilleries are opening soon (including one right on our doorstep, so you won’t have far to stumble home!). Falkirk offers a wonderful array of things to do, from cycle trails, karting snowboarding, laser tag and segway tours to pottery, fishing, golf, falconry and the Falkirk Town Heritage Trail.

We are ideally located to visit Edinburgh, with a bus from the entrance to Weedingshall directly into the city or Edinburgh Zoo, or you’ll find it a short 20 – 25 minute trip in the car or train. In the city you can visit Edinburgh Castle, soak in the history in the Old Town, attend the Festivals or Military Tattoo, visit Holyrood Palace, enjoy a performance at one of the many theatres or one of the many galleries Edinburgh has to offer, but return to your relaxing base here at Weedingshall in the evening, avoiding the noise (and prices!) of the city.
Glasgow is also easily accessible from Weedingshall, either as a 35 minute car or train journey, or by getting a bus from Falkirk. Glasgow is famous for its nightlife and shopping, although there you will also find a plethora of museums, galleries and parks.
