Nestling at the foot of the Ochil Hills, Tillicoultry
used to be famous for it's knitwear and textile industry. However
times change and all the woollen mills have closed - Patons,
Hewitts, the Clock Mill to name but a few
Daiglen still manufacture tartan but they are
the sole surviving textile firm.
Despite this change of fortune in the manufacturing
industry Tillicoultry has continued to grow with new housing
appearing behind the Primary School, behind the Harviestoun
Inn out the Dollar Road and behind Balcarres Street, next to
the Fire Station.
Tillicoultry is well placed for commuting to all
areas of Central Scotland with both Glasgow and Edinburgh within
an hour's drive.
