The Smiddy is located next to The Cross in Kippen, right at the centre of the village, at the top of a cobbled slope in one of the most characterful streets in the Stirling area. It was used by the Rennie family as a blacksmiths for nearly 200 years until the mid-1980s. It is now cared for by the National Trust for Scotland, to whom it was donated by Andrew Rennie in 1985. Refurbished by the NTS in the early 1980s, this Category C Listed Building retains many of the features and tools from its use as a smiddy.
Take a step back (and down) into this historic little gem and see the local blacksmith’s actual working environment.
