The Ochils Landscape Partnership aims to increase access to the hills and glens of the Ochils, improve the quality of our rivers, and restore parts of the historic built landscape. The project will provide opportunities for community involvement and volunteering to tell the story of the area's cultural, social and industrial heritage. It aims to enhance the lives of people in the Hillfoots and also to increase visitors to the area.

The Virtual Visitor & Education Centre is now live!
You can access our 'Virtual Landscape' by clicking on the banner at the top of the page, or via the green tab above.
There are clickable 'hotspots' to information, images, animations and CGI films. The animations were created by the 6 Hillfoots primary schools as part of the recent environmental projects they did with us - each film is on the topic related to their outdoor lessons. And you can learn a bit about Hidden Hillfoots History by watching our amazing films: 'Alva House and Ice House' , Bronze Age Burials', and 'The Ochils and the Locals'.
Our 2014 Geo-caching trail and competition is now live! The trail is in Alva Glen and you can find the GPS co-ordinates via the Virtual Visitor & Education Centre. Alternatively, you can download a paper-based version of the trail here: Alva Glen Geo-caching trail.
Our Woodland Park Geo-caching trail is still in place too. You can find the GPS co-ordinates via the Virtual Visitor & Education Centre or download the paper-based version of the trail here: Ochils Woodland Park Geo-caching trail.
Have fun exploring!
