Callendar House

UK travel information

Callendar House is a baronial mansion located a short distance from the town of Falkirk. The house has been owned by many Scottish families including the Earls of Callendar. Over the centuries it has played a part in the history of Scotland, having played host to Mary, Queen of Scots and Bonnie Prince Charlie. Its last private owners were the Forbes family. 

Callendar House uses costumed players to bring the history of the house to life. The kitchen, which dates from 1825, is the centre of this interactive display and visitors can watch the kitchen staff go about their work, hear stories about life below stairs and sample food from Georgian times. From time to time there are costumed displays of early 19th century clock making, shopkeeping and printing. It is best to contact the house before visiting for up to date details of these displays. All the exhibitions and displays are free, as is entry to the house. 

Callendar House

In the grounds of the house there is a boating lake, children’s play area, picnic benches and woodland walks. The latter include three marked Woodland Trails. In the grounds can be found The Park Gallery, which houses a collection of contemporary visual arts and crafts. The Gallery has works by local, national and international artists. It also offers a programme of workshops and gallery talks. 

Refreshments are available from the teashop and there is a gift shop.

All public areas are accessible for wheelchairs and there is a lift to the upper floors. There is free parking just a short walk from the house.
