The parish of Airth lies at the northern end of Falkirk District and is bounded to the north and east by the estuary of the River Forth.
It covers approximately 5500 acres of predominately good agricultural land with some woodland at Dunmore Park and around the famous Airth Castle. There is a working peat moss of around 500 acres to the west of Letham village. Part of this moss lies within the Parish boundary.
There are four main villages in the Parish with many outlying farms and small groups of cottages and houses.
South Alloa lies at the north end of the Parish and was once the main ferry crossing point to Alloa. It was also once an important port, importing timber and pit props for the local coal mines. Almost all of the original buildings have long since gone and it is now mainly a residential village.
The conservation village of Dunmore lies just off the A905 and it is a model village with a village green and well in the centre. It was built in the early 19th century to house the workers from the nearby Dunmore Estate. It is a very picturesque village with some interesting and unique buildings.
The conservation village of Letham lies to the south of the Parish and was built in the early 20th Century by the famous Carron Iron Company to house coal miners and other workers. There is no visible sign left of the original Letham pit and the village is now only a residential area. Read More
