The town is a popular destination with visitors and there are a number of attractions within easy reach. The Wallace Monument and Bannockburn Visitor Centre are worth a visit to learn about Scottish history and from March to October Blair Drummond Safari Park is easily accessible by car - perfect for a fun family day out.
