    If you fancy a quick excursion this short route from Edinburgh to Stirling is ideal. It takes in the attractive old burgh of South Queensferry, which is dominated by the mighty Forth road and rail bridges. Nearby are Dalmeny House and the elegant Hopetoun House, one of Scotland's finest Adams' mansions. Alternatively, you can leave your car for another mode of transport and take a trip on the Union Canal from Ratho or delve in to the Lothians' clay mining heritage. You can also visit the bustling town of Falkirk, with its own impressive mansion, Callender House and feat of 21st-century engineering, the Falkirk Wheel. Harking back to an earlier age, the Bo'ness and Kinneil Steam railway will feed your nostalgia with trips on its steam trains between Bo'ness and Birkhill.
