Something that never stops amazing me is the unlimited offers we gets as students in Dundee. I’m only staying in Dundee for 12 months, and therefore I’m searching for any opportunity to see the most of Scotland. One of the great advantages of staying in Dundee, is that it is close to everything. This Saturday we got the opportunity to see a lot of the beautiful central Scotland for only £10 total.
By bus, we drove to Falkirk to see the great Kelpies and the Falkirk Wheel. Then we travelled to the Trossachs National Park through Callander and Kilmahog. We drove past Stirling castle and got to enjoy a gorgeous view the whole ride.
These amazing horse statues are apparently the biggest equine sculptures in the world, with their 30 metre of height.
About 15-minute drive from the Kelpies we found the 35 metres high Falkirk wheel, which links the Forth & Clyde Canal and the Union Canals. It works as a boat lift by rotating the ‘wheel’ transporting the boats up and down to the Canal.
Trossachs National Park & Loch Lomond
Thossachs National Park is centred around Loch Lomond and is the fourth biggest national park in the British islands, shall we believe Wikipedia. The national park is so beautiful, and so is the incredible loch within it.
Lock Lomond is also famous for the traditional Scottish song ‘The Bonnie Banks O’ Loch Lomond’. If you haven’t heard it already, you can listen to a beautiful version song here:
