Photographs Of Clackmannan Scotland

Clackmannan is a small town in the Clackmannanshire area of Scotland. It was formerly the county town of the county of Clackmannan. The name of the town refers to the Stone of Mannan, a pre-Christian monument which can be seen in the town square, beside the tolbooth (which dates from the 16th century). During the 12th century, the area formed part of the lands controlled by the abbots of Cambuskenneth. Later it became associated with the Bruce family. During the 14th century they built a strategic castle tower, which survives to this day.
