Glasgow is an ideal base to explore the rest of Scotland, because of its central location and good road, bus and train links. A visit to Stirling is essential for a real taste of the history of Scotland. Stirling was the ancient capital of Scotland, and is regarded by many as Scotland's cultural capital. Stirling is famous for its Castle, situated in a commanding position on a volcanic hill. Stirling Castle overlooks Stirling Bridge, where William Wallace defeated the English armies in 1297, and Bannockburn, where Robert the Bruce did the same in 1314. The life of William Wallace was popularised in the blockbuster film Braveheart, with Mel Gibson playing the lead role.
Or why not visit Falkirk with its Falkirk Wheel, a truly revolutionary design for the 21st Century. The Falkirk Wheel is the world's first and only rotating boatlift, and features a number of events throughout the year, including boat trips.
Day trips to both Stirling and Falkirk are easily made from Glasgow, and the Sandyford Hotel can provide you with more information before and during your stay.
