Buying in Clackmannan
Clackmannan is a small town of roughly 3,500 residents in the Clackmannanshire council area of Scotland, bordering the council areas of Stirling, Fife, and Perth & Kinross. It was formerly the county town of the area until Alloa overtook it in size and local importance. Clackmannanshire is the smallest council area in mainland Scotland. Alloa is just a short distance away to the west, approximately two miles.
In recent years of the 20th century, Clackmannan was a mining town with many residents working in nearby coal mines of the area. However, the town’s earliest growth owes much to its port – now completely gone, unfortunately – that sat on the Black Devon River at its confluence with the Forth River. The port became choked with silt, making it gradually impossible for ships to operate. Clackmannan itself sits about a mile inland of the former port site, so many would be forgiven for not realising it ever had one.
Today, Clackmannan is a quiet dormitory town for residents that predominantly commute to the nearby towns of Alloa, Stirling, Tullibody, Falkirk and Kincardine, and other nearby towns and villages. Residents can get around relatively easily by car as the A907 allows for fast travel west to Alloa. It also allows for travel eastwards to the A876 and A977 trunk roads, which allow for travel to lower central Scotland or further east and north into Fife and Perth & Kinross. The town has no railway station of its own; residents must travel to nearby Alloa to travel by train, but this is a relatively short journey given the town’s proximities. Bus links are also frequent to Alloa where residents can connect to wider routes for onward travel to wider Scotland.
In terms of amenities and things to do, Clackmannan has the usual array of shops and services a small town of this size would have. The town centre has an old world feel and remains of the old tolbooth still exist today. Worth a mention is Clackmannan Tower, an imposing keep of a 14th-century tower house built by a descendant of Robert the Bruce which serves as a tourist attraction in the town. While somewhat light on services, this is more than covered by the amenities and attractions in nearby Alloa, which is just a 10-minute drive away to the west.
As for local schooling then, Clackmannan is served by Clackmannan Primary School. Clackmannan comes under the catchment area for Alloa Academy, the closest secondary school. Some pupils attend Lornshill Academy, located to the northwest of Alloa.
In January 2023, property in Clackmannan stood at an average value of £136,349. Though different property types in Clackmannan have had different average selling prices over the last 12 months: £205,000 for detached properties, £137,750 for semi-detached, £73,333 for terraced and 74,875 for flats.
