129 "A district occupying the south-west part of Perthshire. Excepting the parish of Balquihidder, which anciently belonged to the stewartry of Strathern, the district comprehends all the lands west of the Ochil hills in Perthshire, whose waters discharge themselves into the Forth. The vale of the Teith, whence the name is derived, occupies the central & larger part, but is flanked on the one side by the Perthshire section of the upper vale of the Forth, & on the other side by the lower part of the vale of the Allan. The entire district is about 28 miles in extreme length from east to west, & 15 in extreme breadth; & includes the whole of the parishes of Callander, Aberfoil, Port of Monteith, Kilmadock, Kincardine, & Lecropt, and part of the parishes of Kippen, Dunblane, and Logie. Large tracts of it are eminently rich in the finest elements of landscape. Previous to the abolition of hereditary jurisdictions, Monteith was a separate or independent stewartry. The district anciently gave the title of Earl to a branch of the noble family of Graham." Fullarton's Gazetteer.
