Dating back to the Middle Ages, Kilsyth's Town Charter was granted in 1826, permitting the holders of plots to elect a Town Council. Kilsyth Community Council, as the locally elected representative body, carries on the tradition of ensuring that Kilsyth remains a great place to live, do business, or relax in harmony with nature.
Kilsyth has all the elements you associate with a Scottish market town: a traditional Main Street, attractive parks and gardens complete with two bandstands, welcoming hostelries such as the Coachman Hotel and the Scarecrow pub, and a choice of local restaurants. The nearby villages of Croy, Banton, Queenzieburn, and Twechar are also well worth a visit - all are within easy walking distance from Kilsyth.
Nestling at the foot of the Kilsyth Hills, Kilsyth is a traditional market town and more. Its sheltered position at the heart of Scotland means that it is easily accessible and ideally located for a day trip, family holiday, or as a great base for a walking, golf, fishing or touring holiday, by car, canal boat, horse or bike.
Nearby attractions include the magnificent Falkirk Wheel, a huge boat lift that connects the Union and Forth & Clyde Canal networks, and the Antonine Wall - the northern edge of the Roman Empire. Kilsyth is less than an hour from Glasgow, Stirling and Edinburgh by train or car.
