Thornhill Wynd is our collection of two-bedroom apartments and two, three, four and five-bedroom homes in Falkirk, Stirling. With so much choice on offer, these stylish homes are perfect for first-time buyers through to growing families.
Falkirk is in the Central Lowlands, almost exactly halfway between Scotland's two great cities, Edinburgh and Glasgow, so it's a very convenient location if you need to travel to either place. There's a good road link north to Stirling too, and you can cross the Forth at Kincardine for the main route to Dunfermline. The famous Falkirk Wheel and the incredible Kelpies - 30 metre high horse-head sculptures - bring visitors from far and wide, making this a thriving and fascinating town to call home. There's plenty to do out of town as well, with Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park near enough for a great day out with all the family.
For the golfers amongst you, the Falkirk Golf Club is within walking distance. Other local activities include the Polmont Farm Dry Ski Centre and the Helix Ecopark, which has 350 hectares of land between Falkirk and Grangemouth and is ideal for cyclists, walkers and runners. Falkirk is also home to what may well be one of Scotland's twenty-first century landmarks - the ingenious Falkirk Wheel. Linlithgow Palace is easily accessible from Thornhill Wynd and offers a fantastic day out for all the family. This was the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots. Linlithgow Loch, where there are plenty of scenic walks, is now used for film sets! You can take in the stunning views of the palace and the loch.
