A typical view in Clackmannanshire, with four of the Wee County’s main components: a backcloth to the north of the Ochil Hills and their steep escarpment; below them the flat land flanking the lower reaches of the River Devon; in the foreground the rolling farmland to its south; and on the left Alva, one of the series of ‘Hillfoot’ villages that grew into textile towns using water power from the steep hill burns.
