#Discover a Short Break in Clackmannanshire

Clackmannanshire lies between the majestic Ochil Hills and the River Forth and provides the perfect year-round base to explore the stunning countryside, rich history, medieval castles and tower houses and today’s growing art scene which includes an impressive collection of public art by international artists. For leisure, there is Sterling Mills Outlet Shopping Village, six golf courses, a luxury spa, a fantastic choice of hotels, B&B’s, cottages and campsites, and a variety of places for pub grub, light bites and fine dining.

 

#Discover our Countryside

Clackmannanshire offers lots of opportunity for exploring outdoors which is suitable for all ages and abilities. There are many established walks within the glens of the Ochil Hills. Alva Glen, Tillicoultry Glen and Dollar Glen are easily accessible and for the more intrepid, excellent views are your reward for ascending Ben Cleuch one of the highest and most popular hill walks in Central Scotland at 2363 feet.

 

#Discover The Tower Trail …

Four impressive tower houses (more per square mile than anywhere else in Scotland) have survived at Alloa, Clackmannan, Dollar and Sauchie and represent just a few of the great houses which once existed in Clackmannanshire.

The tall tower houses (dating from the late 14th and 15th centuries) were built by the Bruces, Erskines, Argylls and Schaws, who were among the most distinguished families in medieval Scotland. These houses were required to be in close proximity to the royal court in Stirling, partly for defence, but mainly as a way of showing off the status, wealth and style of their owners.
