Clackmannanshire

Clackmannanshire has long played its part in shaping industry in Scotland and beyond. We need only consider the success of one former ‘Sheriff of Clackmannan’ – John Jameson was born in Alloa in 1740 and went on to create the legendary brand ‘John Jameson & Son’, the third highest selling whiskey brand in the world today.

Clackmannanshire has also been the home to many iconic brands such as Patons & Baldwin’s, George Younger & Son, United GlassSkol and The Alloa Coal Co. Whilst there is still a significant manufacturing presence, now Clackmannanshire is capitalising on its central position and transport links, attracting service industries and tourism.

Clackmannanshire has undergone significant change in the past decade making it an attractive destination to live, work and visit. The hundreds of millions of pounds recently invested in new, quality housing, major retail developments, three new academies, Forth Valley College campus, Alloa Train Station and The Clackmannanshire Bridge has transformed the area, creating a bustling and diverse business and visitor destination.

There are many attractions for visitors, with sites of historic significance including the Tower Trail, Castle Campbell and Kennetpans Whisky Distillery. There is an abundance of outdoor activities such as Gartmorn Dam nature reserve, a first-class cycling network, Firpark Ski Centre and the stunning Ochil Hills, massively appealing to walkers of all levels and mountain bikers, Clackmannanshire boasts five excellent  golf courses, all of which are available for play by the public.

Clackmannanshire has a stunning and strategic setting at the very heart of Scotland.
