Coalsnaughton or Calibar (Scottish Gaelic: Caolas Neachdainn) is a village in Clackmannanshire, Scotland. It is just south of Tillicoultry. a small town which is based upon a slope facing down towards Tillicoultry which creates a valley between Coalsnaughton and the Ochil Hills. There are great sights from Coalsnaughton.

The war memorial is by the Scots sculptor George Henry Paulin.

It also has 2 shops one of which includes a post office. As well as this it has a takeaway and one of the favourite local haunts is the Burns Club based around the great Scottish Tradition of celebrating the great life works of Robert Burns or "Rabbie Burns".

Geographically Coalsnaughton is well placed and links to the Dam Loan, Gartmorn Dam, Dollar and Fishcross by means of some fairly dangerous A roads. Coalsnaughton also boasts its own Primary School. It leads onto to Devonside by the Crankie Brae and the Glen which has recently had a number of new builds attached to the land just up from Langour which leads onto Devonside and Drummie Road and then towards Sterling Mills, formerly Samuel Jones Paper Mill, and then into Moss Road in Tillicoultry.
