9. Cycle Millport, Millport


Exactly what it says on the tin. But generations of families have been cycling around Millport for a reason. Weather permitting it’s lovely and getting the whole family a bike each can prove to be very exciting, (or get the stubborn one in the family a tandem.) 1000’s of bikes for rent. There’s a reason why Millport is referred to as “The Island of a 1000 Bikes”. Click Here

A sheer feat of engineering magnificence. The only rotating boat lift in the world, the Falkirk Wheel has reconnected two canals separated since the 1930’s and helped rejuvenate Falkirk as a tourist destination. The Royal Fine Art Commission for Scotland described it as “a form of contemporary sculpture” and it is said to resemble a mighty double headed Celtic axe. Click Here

6. Glengoyne Distillery Tours, Dumgoyne


Fans of a good malt will love this next suggestion, a tour of the Glengoyne Malt Whisky Distillery on the hills of Dumgoyne. Glengoyne have been producing whisky using the same methods for more than 180 years. For six years the whisky barrels are dried using warm air, but unlike many other distilleries, peat is forbidden from the drying process.
