Callender House.
An Estate House which spans 600 years of Scottish History. But it starts in the eleventh century when the King's representative theThane of Callendar built a house in the shadow of the Antonine Wall. After 4 centuries of the Livingston Family, the house and estate was sold to the Forbes Family in 1783 where they lived until 1963.

Beautiful home,Really big No wonder Livingston wasn`t afraid to walk across Africa, I`d need a map and a seeing eye dog to find the mens room.

There are Callenders in the Bahamas too… I bet there's a link. My husband's family has some historical tie to Stirling Castle even though he is predominantly English.

I work next door to this buliding. Perhaps it's most famous accolade was that Mary Queen of Scots spent her childhood days here, and visited again and again during her troubled reign. Bonnie Prince Charlie also took sanctuary here, as did many other famous Scottish dignataries. Today the house and park belong to the people of Falkirk. No-one can ever buy the House, as the Forbes family bequithed it to the people of Falkirk and it will always be in public hands. We hold our summer festivals, pipe band competitions, funfairs and halloween fireworks nights here. Its a special place to Falkirk folks, so thanks for highlighting it on Fotothing.
