Falkirk Town Centre is not as good a shopping centre as it used to be, but it still looks good on a sunny day.

The Slamannan Basin on the Union Canal, so called because a railway line was run from Airdrie via Slamannan to this basin so that passengers could get a barge from Edinburgh to here, then a train to Glasgow, which drastically reduced the journey time, which had been 8 hours by barge. Sadly for the investors, someone else built a railway line direct from Edinburgh to Glasgow, so the arrangement only lasted about 3 years.
