Holmehill Community Buyout

Holmehill Community Buyout is seeking to take Holmehill, a 13 acre greenspace in the centre of Dunblane, into community control, in order to develop it sustainably for the benefit of our community. Situated to the east of the River Allan, and overlooking the cathedral, Holmehill is a prominent, attractive, and important landscape feature of this cathedral city. Although now well wooded with mature trees, the origin of the name Holmehill – How Maol 'The Hollow of the Bare Hill’ - suggests a time in history when it may have looked very different.

The site currently supports mature policy woodlands, as well as open areas of grass and scrub. A well-used path runs through the site and links the community on the east of Dunblane with the town centre. The trees, and the hill on which they sit, are a prominent and important landscape feature of the town, providing an important sense of place.
