If your trip to Grangemouth is all locked in but your itinerary is looking a bit empty, let us give you a few hints and tips.
Few things beat exploring new places. While you're here, The Kelpies and Macdonald Inchyra Hotel Spa should be among them. Another attraction here is The Helix.
If you're looking for day-trip inspiration, we can help out. Situated 28 miles away, Callander is worth hopping in the car for. Scottish Real Ale Shop should be at the top of your list here. Galleria Luti and Bracklinn Falls Bridge and Callander Crags are must-see attractions too. Locals are also likely to point you in the direction of Doune, 19 miles away. If you only see one attraction here, let it be Deanston Distillery. (But we'd also highly recommend Scottish Antiques and Arts Centre and Doune Castle.)
Beaches are the best places to fly a kite. If the wind's up, why not buckle the youngsters into the car and take a jaunt to Silver Sands Beach? It's 16 miles from Grangemouth and is a glorious place for some fun and games.
Avoid paying an arm and a leg for a rental car by following our recommendations:
Having your own car in Grangemouth will give you more freedom to squeeze in as many attractions as you can. Maybe you'd like to leave town, hit the open road, and see where the wind takes you. If that's the case, collect the keys to one of our SUVs and take in the canals in the surrounding area. If you just want to experience the bright city lights, something small will be a better fit. Navigating heavy traffic will be a whole lot easier in a compact or economy car.
Sometimes it's all about the journey, which makes your car choice important. If you're planning an unforgettable road trip around Grangemouth, a comfortable SUV could be a good choice. If you'd like the best possible price and plan on staying mostly in the city, a budget compact is hard to beat. All you have to do is decide what's going to be the best fit, throw your bags in the back seat, and start clocking up those miles.
