The Wood Hill, between Alva and Tillicoultry, is what remains of the grounds of Alva House (now demolished) and is now the Ochil Hills Woodland Park. As well as attractive walks in deciduous woodland, the park has a children's play area, a number of picnic sites and display boards describing the former grandeur of the old estate.

The park also includes Alva Icehouse an 18th Century iconic structure and one of the projects being developed as part of the Ochils Landscape Partnership ( A Heritage Lottery Project).
Circa 1830. It was the Ice house for Alva estate.
This rare 7-sided form discreetly sited in the ground falling steeply to south. Gated entrance at west leads to a low access tunnel (about 4' high) with doorway to gallery with higher ceiling and chamber at right angles. Random whin rubble with sandstone dressings and red brick. Floor of stone slabs, brick-vaulted ceiling with access hatch, and snecked rubble walls incorporating brick-lined and voussoired segmentally-arched niches with stone shelves. Further door leads to deep brick-vaulted ice chamber with iron-lined access hatch.
