Kippen location

Kippen is a village in west Stirlingshire, Scotland. It lies between the Gargunnock Hills and the Fintry Hills and overlooks the Carse of Forth to the north. The village is 9 miles (14 kilometres) west of Stirling and 20 mi (32 km) north of Glasgow. It is 4 1⁄2 mi (7 km) south-east of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, Scotland’s first National Park.

The village lies on the line of an eighteenth-century military road between Stirling and Balloch, although a bypass around the village was built in 1971 meaning Kippen no longer lies on the A811. According to the 2001 census, the population of Kippen was 1,140.[1]
