Tapoch Broch & Torwood Castle
Ranked #15 of 39 things to do in Falkirk
Attraction details
Reviewed 25 March 2014

This is a fantastic area to explore and needs more than one visit. There is not only a 2500 year old Broch here but also the remains of a 16th century castle and the Roman road which ran between Falkirk and Stirling. These woods also would have seen the build up of Scottish armies before the battle of Bannockburn and William Wallace would have tramped through this area.
The car park is up a lane off Glen Road which is signposted DENOVAN RIGHT OF WAY. The castle can be easily reached from here by following the main lane upwards. Tapoch Broch is reached by crossing over from the carpark and climbing up a faint track through the woods until you can go no higher. The remains are easily spotted. I would suggest that you look at some of the web sites about this area for greater detail and directions. An os map of the area would be useful too. Great walks for families and dog walkers and superb views across the Central Belt.
Just bring your imagination!
