Mining and Minerals

This project showcases the importance of the industrial heritage in the Ochils area's development, which is closely linked to its geology. It will focus on the Silver Glen in Alva, using this to highlight and interpret the mining features of the whole area. The project will make safe the entrance to the former silver mines and make the area more accessible for guided walks through the clearance of paths. There will also be a waymarked route from the Ochils Woodland Park and a burn crossing. Additionally, there will be on-site and online interpretation materials.
