Visitors and locals alike can now enjoy the latest audio tours as they discover the enchanting woodland of the Carron Glen, with commentary and wildlife tips by the Falkirk Rangers, or explore the engineering wonders of the area from Roman times through to the 21st century with the Rough Castle Walking trail, developed by local volunteers.

For those who prefer exploring on two wheels, the app now features new bike routes for a grand tour of Falkirk, with two new cycling trails designed in collaboration with Forth Bikes.

These latest routes join a number of other trails already on the popular tourism app, including audio walks at Callendar Park, Kinneil Estate, Torwood Castle and Carron Dams.
