This beautiful little village is a great base to explore Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park - the oldest National Park in Scotland. An afternoon tea dance is included at the hotel.

BO'NESS & KINNEIL RAILWAY (FULL DAY): Another full day excursion which includes a spin on the world's only rotating boat lift, the awe- inspiring Falkirk Wheel - linking the Forth & Clyde and Union canals. Measuring 35 metres tall this amazing feat of engineering is the height of 8 double decker buses stacked on top of each other. We also enjoy a nostalgic journey on the Bo'Ness & Kinneil Railway with afternoon tea served on board - voted Visit Britain's Top Unusual and Instagrammable Afternoon Teas - admire the beautiful Scottish scenery as you steam along the shores of the River Forth.
