About Callendar Wood
Callendar Wood is an ancient woodland that has formed a dramatic backdrop to the town of Falkirk for hundreds of years. This wonderful, old woodland is a great place to come and visit with the whole family.
Enjoy a relaxing walk and get up close to the woodland wildlife. Explore one of the three waymarked walks and pick up a leaflet from Callendar House.
This is a magical woodland that you will want to come back to time and time again.
