Constituency Profile

Previously known as Ochil, this newly created constituency includes the whole of Clackmannanshire district and the towns of Bridge of Allan and Dunblane. Traditionally, Clackmannanshire was a region characterised by the majestic Ochil Hills and the area's history of mining, brewing and agriculture.

In 2008, a railway line re-establishing Alloa's connection with Stirling and the wider rail network was opened after a break of 40 years. The opening of the £120m Clackmannanshire Bridge in 2008 also saw the area joined to the motorway network for the first time. This constituency now features Bridge of Allan and the cathedral city of Dunblane, famous as the hometown of tennis star Andy Murray.

Ochil was taken by Labour's Dr Richard Simpson in the 1999 Scottish Parliamentary election. However, he was unseated by former Presiding Officer George Reid for the SNP in 2003. Keith Brown held the seat for the SNP in 2007 and 2011.
