Kippen Stirling Scotland - Kippen

Kippen is a small village approximately 10 miles (16 km) west of the city of Stirling, Scotland (also referred to as the Kingdom of Kippen). It lies between the Gargunnock and Fintry hills and overlooks the strath of the River Forth. The name probably comes from Gaelic, and means "Place of the little stump", "outcrop" or "block". In 1891, Duncan Buchanan planted a vineyard in the village and one of its vines grew to be the largest in the world. The Kippen Vine covered an area of 5,000 square feet (460 m2), spreading across four greenhouses. It became a famous tourist attraction, until the Kippen Vinery had to close in 1964.
