Tillicoultry (/ˌtɪliˈkuːtri/ TIL-ee-KOO-tree; Scottish Gaelic: Tulach Cultraidh, perhaps from older Gaelic Tullich-cul-tir, or “the mount/hill at the assist of the country”) is a town in Clackmannanshire, Scotland. Tillicoultry is usually referred to as Tilly by the locals.
One of the Hillfoots Villages upon the A91, which runs from Stirling to St. Andrews, Tillicoultry is situated at the southern base of the Ochil Hills, which have enough money a spectacular backdrop. The River Devon lies to the south. The river moreover runs through neighbouring villages Dollar and Alva to the east and west respectively.
