Rotary Club of Larbert
The famous cattle trysts were held in Larbert from 1782 with as many as 150,000 cattle, sheep and horses brought there for sale from all over Scotland. The arrivsl of the railways in the 1840s ended the trysts.
The sculpture shown above is fabricated from cast iron reflecting the connection with the nearby Carron Iron Works. The highland cow was also the logo of McCowan's toffee factory, makers of Highland Toffee, established in Stenhousemuir in 1922.
Other places of interest close by are The Falkirk Wheel, The Kelpies, Callander House and Stirling Castle. Glasgow and Edinburgh are only 30 minutes away by car or train.
President Arthur Priestly
A very warm welcome to the Rotary Club of Larbert from President Arthur
Our Club meets weekly for fellowship, dinner and a presentation from a guest speaker
We also meet to raise funds for local causes and to help overseas charities.
We are a vibrant, fun loving club and are always looking for more members who are like minded and willing to put others before themselves.
Why don't you come along and see us at Carmuirs Golf Club on Wednesday evenings at 6.30pm?
You will be made very welcome!
