Cambusbarron is a village in Stirling, Scotland. It has a population of approximately 3,224. There is evidence of settlement at the site since the Bronze Age, and several forts dating from the Iron Age have been found near the village. One such fort is located at Gillies Hill, a large semi-natural ancient woodland area with a range of unusual wildlife, thought to be the site of Robert the Bruce’s camp shortly before the Battle of Bannockburn.
Cambusbarron grew during the nineteenth century due to the presence of the Hayford Mill, a large wool-spinning mill and tweed manufacturer, on the outskirts of the village. Several limestone and quartz-dolerite quarries have been active in the area around Cambusbarron during the twentieth century.
Cambusbarron Community Council is an elected body of local people that represent the views of the community to Stirling Council, business and other groups. The Council receives funding from the Kingsburn wind farm.
