Clackmannan and the Ochils: An Illustrated Architectural Guide (RIAS Series of Illustrated Architectural Guides to Scotland) An illustrated architectural guide to Clackmannan and the Ochils with its rich heritage of early woollen mills and mill villages. Coal and silver mines and the largest surviving tannery in Scotland coexist with the finest tower houses in Scotland, Clackmannan, Castle Campbell and Sauchie.
Walking in the Ochils, Campsie Fells and Lomond Hills: 33 Walks in Scotland's Central Fells (Cicerone British Walking) As rugged and spectacular as they can be tranquil and picturesque, the Campsie Fells, the Ochils and the Lomonds are the most accessible hills in Scotland's Central Belt. Despite their close proximity to Edinburgh, Glasgow and Perth, these three ranges remain a remarkably uncrowded wilderness area. Combining a rich mixture of open moorland peaks, steep sided glens, fast flowing burns and lush woodland, few other areas can treat the hillwalker to such diverse scenery and varieties of animal and plant life in the space of a single day's outing. This guide describes 33 contrasting walks that will take the walker over the three ranges. The majority of these walks are circular.
Old Clackmannan, Sauchie and Tullibody and Other Airts of the Wee County Complementing Old Hillfoots and Old Alloa, this third Clackmannanshire title by Guthrie Hutton encompasses a number of the county's smaller towns and villages. In addition to those places mentioned in the title, pictures of Cambus, Kennet, Castlebridge Colliery, Forestmill, the Gartmorn Dam, Fishcross, Devon Village, Devon Colliery, Marchglen, Coalsnaughton and Glenochil Mine are included too. There's some fascinating industrial history here: water from the Gartmorn Dam was used to drive powerful water wheels which drove pumps to dry out coal mines belonging to the 6th Earl of Mar, while almost 300 years later Glenochil Mine was sunk near Tillicoultry, only to prove to be an enormously costly white elephant. Elsewhere in the book many other aspects of life in these rural areas is covered.
Mining from Kirkintilloch to Clackmannan and Stirling to Slamannan: From Kirkintilloch to Clackmannan and Stirling to Slamannan Packed with over two hundred illustrations, this is the fifth and latest book in the Stenlake mining series. Combined sales of the previous four volumes now exceed 10,000 copies. The somewhat unwieldy title reflects the spread-out nature of the area covered - the old counties of Clackmannanshire, Stirlingshire and East Dunbartonshire and the valleys of the Kelvin, the Bonny, the Forth and the Carron together with the Slamannan Plateau. More specifically mining in the following areas is featured - Baldernock, Kirkintilloch, Croy, Twechar, Auchenreoch, Kilsyth, Nethercroy, Dullatur, Denny, Bonnybridge, Redding, Shieldhill, Slamannan, Standburn, Maddiston, Falkirk, Grangemouth, Airth, Plean, Bannockburn, Cowie, Millhall, Fallin, Glenochil, Alloa, Sauchie, Tillicoultry, Dollar. Amongst the many collieries, pits and mines featured are Castlecary, Woodilee, Meiklehill, Gartshore, St Flannan's, Dumbreck, Gardrum, Polmaise, Manor-Powis, Devon, Sherriffyards and Bessie Glen. Also included are scenes of the communities themselves plus social and sporting activities such as local bands and football teams.
