Callendar House was the seat of power in the Falkirk area for almost a thousand years.  The original structure occupied a prominent position at ‘Palace Hill’, just behind the Antonine Wall at the east end of what is now Callendar Park. 

      Internally the building is now the headquarters of Falkirk Community Trust, but there are many late 18th century and early 19th century features still to be seen – most notably the kitchen.  The tower house can also be found, if you know where to look!
