Road Directions

The town of Clackmannan derives its name from the ‘Clack’ or Stone of Mannan, a pre-Christian monument dedicated to the Celtic sea-god Manna. This monument can be seen in the town square next to the old Mercat Cross and the remains of the tollbooth, built in 1592.

On Kings Seat Hill stands Clackmannan Tower, a magnificent tower house with commanding views over the Forth Estuary. This fortified tower was built by King David II in the 14th century before passing into the hands of the Bruce Family.

Next to the castle you will find the Clackmannan Church. The attractive Parish Church was built in 1815 to a design by James Gillespie Graham, replacing a smaller church dating back to 1249.
