place, Clackmannan has sunk into comparative hw.#-
nificance : the surrounding scenery, however, is r>( a
very delightful description, and is viewed to great ad-
vantage from Clackmannan Tower, which occupies a
commanding site a little west of ihe town. Tradition
states that th'S tower was built by King Robert liruce,
close to which he had his palace, not a vestige of winch
latter now remains. The tower is eighty feet high and
contains a variety of apartments, reached by means of
a spiral staircase.
The principal trade is that derived from the coal
mines, which supply employment and humble compe-
tence to many of the industrious classes. The soil of
the parish is considered the richest arable in the shire.
and is under the best state of cultivation. It has a
two thousand persons. The other public institutions
are the parochial school, a ladies' school, two other
subscription schools, and a society for general religious

the base of the Ochil hills, at the entrance to Sheriff
Mnir, and presents a singularly plea-ing scene of
•natural beauty; a favourite resort for families, from
the large towns, during summer, lodgings being gener-
ally full during the season. The kirk, which is small
and neat, stands about five milps from Alloa. The
parish of Logie, or Blair- Logie, lies partly in the shires
of Stirling, Perth, and Clackmannan — the larger portion
neing on the North bank of the river Forth, opposite
Stirling. Within the parish, on a flat peninsula, formed
by a sinuosity of the river, the tall and desolate ruin
of Cambuskenneth abbey presents itself; the plain ad-
jacent was the arena in which Wallace obtained his
first open and signal victory over the arms of King
Edward. Fairs 4th September for cattle and horses.
