Buying in Falkirk
Although an ancient town laying claim to much historical significance (not least as the location of battles during the Wars of Independence and the Jacobite Uprising) Falkirk came to national prominence during the Industrial Revolution, as one of the cradles of Scotland’s Ironworks industry.
Since the decline of traditional industry, Falkirk has managed a successful transition to a retail and service economy and is proving a popular place to live which much to recommend it to potential residents and tourists alike. Falkirk town centre has many historic buildings and has been largely pedestrianised, making it an attractive core for the town. The surrounding countryside and outskirts of the town are pleasant and the nearby Callendar Park includes the stunning Callendar House and the remains of the Antonine Wall, a Roman fortification that passed through what is today Falkirk. The town is also known throughout Scotland for the Kelpies, two massive sculptures located in Helix park, as well as the Falkirk Wheel, an astonishing work of waterway engineering which pulls in visitors from across the land.
Falkirk has excellent transport links with both of Scotland’s two largest cities, with train and road links to Glasgow and Edinburgh making it a very desirable commuter town for those who work there. Falkirk was also found in 2020 to be one of the cheapest commuter towns for those commuting to Edinburgh.
In terms of property types, Falkirk has all the variety that its long history would suggest, from traditional terraced houses to modern flats, large Victorian villas and bungalows. The average price for a property in Falkirk stands at £158,172 as of January 2020. This represents a healthy rise of 2.94% since the same time and a rise of 0.21% since October 2019.
