Living in Clackmannanshire

Everything you could wish for in a community

Situated between the striking Ochil Hills and the River Forth, boasting both busy towns and peaceful countryside, wherever you want to call home, you'll find a great choice of housing. The area also boasts six golf courses, an equestrian centre and a dry ski slope.

Our Council area may be small, but it offers great retail, leisure and entertainment. Tillicoutry boasts some of Scotland's best shopping at Sterling Warehouse, Britain's largest furniture retail centre, and Sterling Mills, which is packed with brand name outlets. For those who prefer something a little more sedate, the nearby MacRobert Theatre at Stirling University stages a wide range of productions throughout the year.

The area benefits from a rail link to Glasgow and Edinburgh, while the Clackmannanshire Bridge gives a fast route across the Forth.

Clackmannanshire has eighteen primary schools and three modern secondary schools which opened in 2009, supported by Forth Valley College campus and the nearby University of Stirling.
