The Kelpies, Falkirk
These 30m high steel sculptures were completed in 2013. They represent Kelpies, mythological beasts from Scottish folklore. Visitors can climb inside the statues, as well as admiring them from outside. The sculptures are even more impressive in reality than in pictures
Loch Lomond is the Scottish Highlands in miniature. Possibly the most beautiful loch in Scotland (and the largest by area) set in breathtaking scenery
The birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots. Although Linlithgow Palace is now a ruin, it is fun to explore. The stairways are still intact and you can get a real sense of what it would have been like to live there. The palace stands beside a loch (Scottish for "lake") situated in a beautiful park.
See the Crown Jewels of Scotland, the mysterious Stone of Destiny, the beautiful St Margaret’s Chapel and the famous One o’clock Gun.
