Reddingmuirhead is a village located in Stirlingshire, Falkirk council area, Central Scotland. A few hundred yards uphill from the village of Redding, it is between Shieldhill and Brightons.

The village contains a large Co-operative Society building, the shops of which provide most everyday requirements, one small general store, and one licensed grocer who also looks after the post office, and a large secondary school Braes High. It was notable in recent times due to the success of its local Sunday football team, Blairlodge AFC, which competed in the Falkirk and District League.[citation needed]

Reddingmuirhead is also the location of the Polmont Young Offenders Institution.
