Larbert is a town in the Falkirk council area of Scotland. The town is located in the Forth Valley over the River Carron which flows from the west. It is located approximately 3 miles (4.8 km) from the coastline of the Firth of Forth and 2.5 miles (4.0 kilometres) northwest of Falkirk, the main town in the area. The village of Stenhousemuir lies directly east of Larbert, with both settlements being contiguous and sharing various public amenities with each other.
In middle ages times, the Larbert region was densely forested, but this was cleared and gave rise to much of the agricultural land which encompasses the town. The progression of industry and even more so the arrival in the 1840s of the Scottish Central Railway, which travels through the village, provided a base for economic growth. From the late 18th century till the middle of the 20th century, heavy industry, such as boiler making, casting and production underpinned the economy of Larbert. The Victorian era also saw the opening of the Stirling District Lunatic Asylum at Bellsdyke and Scottish National Institution for Children on the Stenhouse Estate. This made Larbert pivotal in providing care, both regionally and across the country. Even though the historic financial base of Larbert vanished with the drop-off of heavy industry, it has recently experienced much development as a commuter town. Many residents operate in the close-by towns of Falkirk and Stirling, in addition to the cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow. The 2011 Census demonstrates that the population of Larbert has grown to 9143 from the 2001 Census record of 6425, and it continues to grow with large-scale housing development on the northern periphery of the town along with on brownfield sites.
