Greenloaning is a village in Perth and Kinross, Perthshire, Scotland. It lies by the Allan Water and the Stirling-Perth Railway line. It is one mile south of Braco and five miles north of Dunblane.[2] There is a currently mothballed primary school[3] and the Allanbank Hotel which has existed as an Inn since the 18th Century and was founded by the Monteath family.[4] It was also the site of the Strathallan Farmer's Club founded in 1804. [5] Greenloaning is the home of the Greenloaning Burns Club. [6] The railway station was closed in 1956, but part of the station building still survives.[7]
