Airth

A Royal burgh lying on the banks of the River Forth in Falkirk, this quaint market village hosts a number of historical and interesting buildings and lies within close proximity to many famous landmarks and nearby cities. The meaning of the name Airth derives from its location, meaning a flat green area, which accurately describes the area - it features scenic views of the surrounding rolling countryside as well as the River Forth. The village itself is designated as a Conservation Area, with areas of historical interest including the Market Cross from the late 17th century; the ruins of an ancient church with ties to Hollyrood Abbey; as well as the dramatic Airth Castle, which overlooks the village.

The annual Airth Highland Games is a popular event, taking place in the village in the summer months. Popular with locals and tourists alike, this competition dates back to 1871 - legend says that Prince James’ rebel army started the games when they made their way through Airth to the battle of Sauchieburn. Visitors can also benefit from the villages fortunate location and visit the capital city of Scotland, Edinburgh, which is a mere 30 minute drive away, or Stirling, which is only 20 minutes away.

We love Airth because...

  • Quaint, historic market village
  • Host to local highland games
  • Home of ‘Pineapple’ building

A 14th century castle (apparently with its own ghost!), with a 21st century makeover. A beautiful building made better by some truly modern design.

In and around Airth

The Pineapple

A unique structure erected in 1761, this eccentric pineapple-shaped building was conceived by Lord Dunmore as a folly to announce his return home from Virginia. The expert masonry of the building is fascinating, with impressive technical details and artistic skill on show. The National Trust now owns the building and has opened it to the public allowing visitors to explore the large walled gardens and take walks around the area to admire this strange building.

Forthview Golf Range

The perfect place to practice your golfing skills. This family-run business offers putting, short and full swing facilities to all, from complete beginners looking to get some practice, to keen golfers hoping to improve their technique. The experienced and friendly staff offer up a warm welcome as well as expert advice.

The Kelpies

A mere 6 miles from Airth lies The Kelpies. These fantastic equine monuments each weigh 300 tonnes, stand over 30 meters high and make use of 1200 tonnes of steel reinforced concrete in their foundations. The Kelpies name reflects the mythological transforming creatures who were said to possess the strength and endurance of 100 horses.
