Ashfield (Scottish Gaelic: Achadh an Uinnsinn) is a hamlet in the Registration county of Perth and the local government district of Stirling, Scotland. It lies between the Allan Water and the Stirling-Perth Railway line. It is two miles north of Dunblane,[2] and was designated a conservation village in 1976. It was originally built to house workers at a nearby silk dyeing mill. [3] [4] Prior to this a mill, Millash or Mill of Ash, existed, as did an extensive house or farm[5] Ashfield has four residential streets (Ochillview, Alanview, The Steading and The Cottages) and also a square, named after the former prime minister William Gladstone, called Gladstone Square.

There are various annual activities based in the village hall such as a Blues festival, a Food festival and a Music festival.
