Welcome to Clackmannanshire
Clackmannanshire has many treasures crammed into its compact territory – big skies, ancient architecture, spectacular wildlife and hospitable, down-to-earth people.
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.
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.
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.
It is mainly along streets in the town, although the pavement width may be restricted on bin collection days!
