Banknock is a small village in the Falkirk region of Scotland situated on the road between Bonnybridge and Kilsyth, close to the village of Haggs on the Bonny Water north of the River Forth and the Clyde Canal. Banknock was originally known as Balinknock meaning ‘township of the hillock’ and dates back to c1450, when the lands belonged to the feuding Fleming family. Banknock grew during the 18th and 19th century as a busy coal mining village and was noted for its whiskey production until 1928 with the closure of the Bankier Distillery. This pretty village is surrounded by rolling hills and picturesque countryside; it is a popular tourist destination and an ideal base for touring the Falkirk attractions. Banknock has hotels with restaurants, holiday accommodation, pubs, shops and amenities and a takeaway fast food restaurant. Attractions include the 5 star family attraction Falkirk Wheel with canal trips, gift-shop, café and scenic country walks to the remains of a roman encampment, The Forth and Clyde Canal, the longest of the Lowland canals with 40 locks and connections to two other waterways and the Colzium House and Walled Garden, with conifers, shrubs and trees, woodland trails and a heritage museum. Nearby stands the historic Wallace Monument, steeped in Scottish History with exhibitions and displays including a replica of Wallace’s famous sword.
