  About Kippen
Welcome to Kippen a small interesting Scottish village
nestling between the Gargunnock and Fintry hills and overlooking the valley of the River Forth. The village of Kippen commands enviable views over some of Scotland's finest scenery. Kippen and the nearby Kippen Muir are steeped in some of Scotland's most colourful history.
The Name KIPPEN probably comes from the Gaelic (indigenous language of the Scots) word meaning Place of the little stump or outcrop or block. This refers to the geological nature of the village of Kippen as it sits on an outcrop of the Gargunnock Hills.
