Wild Clackmannanshire
True adventure is closer than you think

Discover a hidden gem for outdoor activities in central Scotland and unleash your spirit of Adventure. Enjoy Some of Scotlands best and most accessible canyoning adventures, revel in the range of trails for mountain bikers of all levels and take in a spectacular array of waterfalls, rushing burns and beautiful glens.

Just an hour from Edinburgh or Glasgow, near Stirling, lie the ancient Ochil Hills in Clackmannanshire. Formed around 400 million years ago, these hills are a spectacular wedge of volcanic rock towering over the Forth Valley. The steep, south-facing slopes are home to cascading burns carving deep chasms between spectacular peaks. Emerging from the last Ice Age, the Ochils unveiled themselves as a haven for the present-day adventure seeker.

Brucefield Estate
A luxurious and adventurous escape

From the high ground of the Ochils, looking over the Forth Valley towards the mighty River Forth, one can spot a vibrant patch of dark green: the tranquil oasis of Brucefield Estate. Its wild and enchanting forest is where we start our adventure and our eventual retreat after exhilarating descents through the glens by wheel and water. This is more than your average adventure holiday in the UK; it's a journey into the wild, remarkably accessible yet untamed.
