Callendar House has played a major part in Scottish history over the years and is probably now the second most visited place in Fa.lkirk. It is a magnificent building modelled on a French chateau. A castle has been on the site since the 13thcentury.
The house was built by the great industrialist William Forbes in 1783 , and whose descendants lived here for close on 200 years.
It has now been restored by the council as a museum nad heritage centre. It has also various working exhibits.
