Perched on the outskirts of Falkirk, Stirlingshire, lies this fabulous holiday property, Shieldhill Farm House. Perfect for families or large groups, this charming home boasts a plethora of on-site amenities, tasteful decor, as well as ample positioning to the bustling cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh. Inside, you will find all the facilities you need for fully self-catered stay, including a well-presented kitchen, where tasty dishes can be whipped up to be enjoyed around the dining table or even in one of the sitting rooms, each complete with TV and woodburning stoves that take centre stage. As the evenings grow darker, why not indulge in the relaxing outdoor hot tub, before retreating to one of five plush bedrooms, two of which come with accompanying en-suite shower rooms that await to help you wash away the day as you prepare for a new one. If you fancy exploring your surroundings, take a short car trip into Falkirk, where you can grab a fresh loaf from Marshalls Family Bakery, visit the tourist hotspot of The Falkirk Wheel, or even roam the tranquil grounds of Callendar Park and House or enjoy their cycle trails. The Milk Barn ice cream parlour is just 0.5 miles away. Just north of Falkirk, you will find Stenhousemuir, home to the Glenbervie Golf Course, the Bee Statue, or if you and your loved ones are up for something competitive, an afternoon out at Xtreme Karting might just be in order. If you want to make a day of it, Glasgow is slightly further afield, a city offering visitors the chance to spend time to soak up nature at The Hidden Gardens, brush up on their scientific knowledge at the Glasgow Science Centre, or even play a few games at the Hollywood Bowl bowling alley. All of this and more awaits during a stay at Shieldhill Farm House.
Between the cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh, in Scotland's Central Lowlands, sits the lively town of Falkirk. In addition to hosting famous tourist destinations like The Kelpies, The Falkirk Wheel, and the Rosebank Distillery, the town is best known for hosting a number of historical battles, including the Battle of Falkirk and the Battle of Falkirk Muir, in which Scottish hero William Wallace was killed in the former. The Croft & Creel and Café Corvina are two places to eat, and Morrisons and the M&S Food Hall are both great places to stock up on necessities. A short journey from the town will take you to Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, which is known for its historic sites like Edinburgh Castle and the National Monument of Scotland as well as its vibrant neighbourhoods of New Town and the Royal Mile.

We couldnât have asked for better. Kitchen was so well equipped which is great when we as a group like to stay in & cook. The house was so roomy, comfortable & warm. Was second to none. Definitely going back next year for our girly annual get together
Owner also gave this a personal touch by leaving warm scones for our arrival we will be back
For our friends' Christmas gathering, the house was warm, comfortable, entertaining and even had a cute Christmas tree. The roads are dark at night but the driving instructions were super clear so we could find it without issue. The house was well stocked with amenities (plenty of glasses, plates, towels, etc) and the welcome basket was a great touch! We will certainly be looking to stay again and couldn't recommend enough.
