Tillicoultry lies nine miles to the east of Stirling at the foot of the of the massive and striking Ochil hills.
It is on the A91 Stirling, St. Andrews road if forms the third of the four "Hillfoots Villages" of Clackmannanshire,( known as the "WEE COUNTY" Scotland's smallest County) lying to the east of Menstrie and Alva and to the west of Dollar. Alloa the county town lies four miles to the south-west on the banks of the Forth. No one who visits Tillicoultry can fail to be impressed by the importance and beauty of the Ochils. There is a old saying that the name Tillicoultry comes from when a Highland Man was taking a drove of cattle along the old road, and when passing a burn, none of the cattle took a drink,when, in astonishment, he exclaimed ' There's Tiel a coo try ' (Deil a cow dry) in the Highlandmans way of pronouncing the D; and hence the town got its name!
The other suggestion is that the origin of the name is Gaelic "Tullich-cultir" the mount at the back of the hill.
Hill climbing is the area is very popular.
