Welcome to Clackmannanshire

Walking Experiences

Tower Walk

Along Main Street past the Tolbooth, Market Cross and Stone of Mannan, then up High Street to the Tower, continuing via a core path down a grassy slope to a farm track. The return to the town centre is on quiet roads.

Path Information
Core paths across fields can be muddy depending on the weather. There may also be livestock in the fields and dogs must be kept on a short leash.

Town Walk

This walk passes the war memorial and the locations of the schools, churches and manses that were built as the population and wealth of the town increased, due to the industries based on coal mining, mills and distilleries.

Path Information
It is mainly along streets in the town, although the pavement width may be restricted on bin collection days!

Linn Mill Walk

The walk heads towards the brickworks, then onto the cycle path and a woodland path heading to Linn Mill. The return is on pavements beside busy roads.

Path Information
One extension continues along the cycle path to “Maggie Duncan’s Stane”, adding about 4 miles, there and back. Another extension is along the main road to the Parkmill roundabout, where an ancient standing stone can be seen, and continuing to the walking/cycle path that returns to Clackmannan, adding 1.5 miles to the walk.

Kennet Walk

A gentle walk along the main road to Kennet Village with its row of miners’ cottages, returning through woodland, along the edge of the plateau overlooking the Forth valley and the residential streets of east Clackmannan. The former distillery at Kennetpans is about 1.5 miles down the track that passes the walled garden, and is on the Jamieson Trail.

Path Information
The woodland section can be muddy depending on the season and weather.
