MUIRAVONSIDE COUNTRY PARK
170 acres of woodlands, parklands and garden including vertiginous slopes abutting the Avon Gorge, now in the care of Falkirk Council. Created from the estate of Muiravonside House, U plan 17th century house, its foundations were the old home farm, now the visitors’ centre.
HOUSE OF THE BINNS
It reflects the early 17th century transition in Scottish architecture from fortified stronghold to more spacious mansion. The furniture dates mostly from the late 18th and early 19th centuries. There is also an excellent run of family portraits charting the Dalyells’ lives and interests.
