Clackmannanshire is a small county in the centre of Scotland, on the border of Perthshire, Stirlingshire and Fife. Its primary industry is agriculture, although brewing and exporting are experiencing a boom in recent decades.
Although it appears small on the map, Clackmannanshire provides a lot of variety when considering properties in the region. The largest of the towns in the area, Alloa, has recently undergone a fair amount of redevelopment around the docks, which have been unused since the shipping industry petered out in the area. It has also recently been connected to the national rail network, and is therefore a promising choice for commuters seeking their first family home in a centre of regeneration.
Of course, with such wild expanses of countryside there are also plentiful opportunities to purchase rural properties. Purchases such as these, because of their unique nature, must always be considered on a case-by-case basis to ensure that each requirement of the buyer is met. In spite of this, it seems that because of Clackmannanshire's central location, attractiveness to tourists, and redeveloping population centres, investments of this kind are likely to retain their worth.
