043 A range of hills extending in a S.W. [South West] and N.E. [North East] direction & forming the Southern side of the vale of Strathmore in which the parish is situated. Leaving the parish upon its eastern boundary they extend across the County nearly due E. [East] till they meet the German Ocean at Redhead. From the S.W. [South West] corner of the parish they proceed in the same line till they meet the Tay, at or near the confluence of the Earn with the latter, & said to be terminating in Kinnoul hill close upon Perth. The portions of them in this parish, which have a gentle & northern declivity towards Strathmore, are designated Nevay Hill & Ingliston Hill, & principally covered with fir plantations & heathy pasture, only some of the latter being cultivated on its summit, like many other hills of the range.
