South Bantaskine Estate Public Park

Parks & Gardens

Lochgreen Road, Falkirk, Stirlingshire, FK1 5PT

    A public park with elevated hills which provides dramatic views across the canal, railway and the hills of Fife.

    Once acting as the former estate of Bantaskine, the park stretched from the existing slopes below Arnothill to Falkirk's wooded high ground to the south.

    North Bantaskine House was home to the Laird of Bantaskine, who played an important part in Falkirk's early history. This house was then demolished in the 1950s by Sir John Wilson, a rich coal-master and Unionist MP for Falkirk. He then built the new Bantaskine House, which acted as home for his wife and eight daughters. 

    The walled garden and the gates are the only remains of part of this public park. The Howgate Shopping centre now contains the stained glass from the main stair of Bantaskine House.
