Britain’s Best Walking Neighbourhood
We need you to vote! Falkirk is through to the last 10 for Britain’s Best walking Neighbourhood award.
People across the country have been submitting their nominations and the Ramblers expert panel have chosen the final ten.
Now it is up to you to decide the winner and we need your vote to get Falkirk out on top!
"Falkirk was nominated because it provides a distinctive mix between large scale redevelopment and well-preserved historical neighbourhoods whose small shops, cafes and pleasant walking routes contribute to a very welcoming area for walkers. The Roman remains, canals, and waterways provide this town with great places to walk. With its incredible features such as the Kelpies, the Falkirk Wheel, and a public right of way through the city centre, it’s been referred to as the secret success story of Scotland." - Ramblers
