OS1/25/11/1 BLAIRGOWRIE [parish] Blairgowrie Blairgowrie Blairgowrie Blairgowrie Blairgowrie Blairgowrie Blairgowrie Blairgowrie Blairgowrie Blairgowrie Blairgowrie Old Statistical Account New Statistical Account Fullarton's Gazetteer Sheriff's Returns Chalmer's Caledonia Valuation Roll County Directory Estate Plans Pennant's Tour of 1772. Wilson's Archaeology Duncan's Itinerary "The name of this parish is said to be derived from the Gaelic word Blaar, signifying a place where moor and Moss abound. By another theory, it is connected with the Gaelic word signifying battle, or the place of battle. Gowrie was the ancient name of the district in which the parish is situated, and seems to have been added to the term Blair, to distinguish it from other places of the same name as Blair Athole, Blair Logie, Blair Drummond &c. The barony is said to have formed a part of the extensive possessions of the unfortunate family of Gowrie. The figure of the parish is exceedingly irregular. the main division of the parish is bounded on the East, by a detached part of the parish of Bendochy; but principally by Rattray Parish, from which it is separated by the River Ericht, which forms the boundary line of the parish for a considerable distance; on the South, by the parish of Bendochy; on the South West and West, by the parishes of Caputh and Kinloch; and on the North, partly by another detached part of Bendochy, and partly by the parish of Alyth. There are two portions of the parish [continued on page 2]

OS1/25/11/2 BLAIRGOWRIE [parish] (Continued) [continued from page 1] parish separated from the main division, by the intervening branches of the parishes adjoining The largest of these lies to the North West of the principal division, from which it is separated by branches of the parishes of Kinloch and Bendochy. It comprehends part of the district called the Forest of Cluny, & a considerable tract on both sides of the river Ardle. The other detached portion of the parish lies to the North-East of the main division, from which it is separated by the parish of Rattray, and is supposed to contain about 2 square miles. It is known by the general name of the Creuchies. The parish lies on the north side of the magnificent valley of Strathmore, partly within it, and partly along the series of gentle elevations which form its northern boundary, rising in height, as they recede from the plain, till they swell out into the lofty summits of the Grampian Mountains. Longitudinally, the parish extends nearly North & South & is naturally divided into two districts, nearly equal in extent the Highland and the Lowland: the former being the hilly division, which lies to the northward of the great strath, the latter the portion lying within its boundary. The only market town in the parish is the town of Blairgowrie, which occupies a pleasant situation on the west bank of the river Ericht. A branch of the Scottish North Eastern Railway, skirts the south eastern extremity of the Parish, and terminates at the town."

The Herr Cairns of Gormack (in Kinloch Parish) below, & immediately contiguous, lying close together, about 80 in number & about 15 feet each by 5 in height, mark the contest that followed: the site is still to be traced by numerous tumuli through Maws in the parish of Blairgowrie along the tract that lies between between the Moss of Cochridge on the west & the River Ericht on the east. The great Cairn of Maws lies in this tract, not far from the woody banks of Eroch. This Cairn is 27 yards broad and about 4 feet high, it was opened, in the centre, by the writer hereof (Revd [Reverend] James Playfair) & found to contain human teeth & a great quantity of human bones much reduced, which were mixed with charcoal, and lodged among loose earth, having undergone the fire, which contributed to the preservation both of the bones & charcoal. This is the grave of the 340 Romans who fell. The Britons lost 10,000. I found burned bones also in a small tumuli adjacent" Old Stat Acct. [Statistical Account]

One of the most remarkable of these precipices is to be seen on the west or Blairgowrie side of the river and is called Craiglaich or "the Eagle's Craig" (not known by the latter name). It is a huge rock about 300 feet in height, presenting a vast gray front, so uniform as to resemble a work of masonry. In this rock at the base, there is a cave or fissure, which seems to have been formed by the violent breaking off and detaching of huge masses from the solid rock. It is low in the roof, and extends only about 30ft. underneath the rock. Upon an angle of the rock, and on the very verge of the precipice, are still to be traced the ruins of a circular tower, once of great height and strength, still known by the name of Lady Lindsay's Castle, in which some centuries ago (so runs the legend) a daughter of the noble house of Crawford was confined for life in obedience to a fiat of the Pope, to expiate, by a dreary penance, some deep and deadly sin which she had committed."

[Statistical Account] 052 A small eminence which was almost defaced some years ago in making room for the back wing or Kitchen to the Manse. Mr. Soutar says that it was here, according to tradition, where the Earls of Gowrie held their baron courts, for administering justice. "In its original and perfect state it had a flat surface on the top, which was surrounded by a rampart of earth; but most unfortunately the whole of the earth composing it was some years ago carted away and put upon part of the Glebe and there are now few vestiges remaining. In the course of digging the foundation of the new wing of the manse, in 1838, there was discovered, in the centre of the space formerly occupied by the mound, a circular excavation, about 3 feet in diameter, and 6 feet in depth, which which had been dug far down into the hard gravel, & afterwards filled up with black unctuous looking mould, intermixed with ashes & pieces of charred wood. The writer examined this excavation, but can form no conjecture as to its origin or purpose, unless it may be supposed to mark the spot where witches were formerly burnt, many of whom, according to tradition were executed on this Knoll."

"Ardblair Castle - one of those ancient massive-looking structures which partake, in a nearly equal degree, of gloomy, frowning, suspicious-looking style of the olden time, and the more open and commodious fashion of our own days. On each side of the level piece of green sward betwixt the mansion and the road, stands a row of magnificent lime trees, apparently coeval with the fabric itself, flanked on each by groves of various kinds of timber, affording shelter to a large and noisy colony of crows. The Castle is one of the family seats of Mr. Blair Oliphant of Gask and Ardblair, but has long ceased to be honoured with the residence of any of the family; and it is now Occupied by the tenant of the adjoining farm."

OS1/25/11/90 MOUND [Moss of Ardblair] Fort Fort Mr. Soutar Mr. Neilson 063 A mound of earth evidently thrown up by art. Mr. Soutar believes it to be one of the ancient fortresses, and that a building of some description had been on it, but no traces of such can now be seen. "About a mile from Blairgowrie you will perceive, a little to the left of the road, a green mound of a circular form, covered, and nearly concealed from view by a clump of dark, umbrageous, scotch firs. This mound is, you observe, bounded to the east and west by a morass; and the ground to the north and south, also, is of a wet and marshy character, bearing every appearance of having been, at no very remote period, entirely under water. Accordingly, we have a very distinct tradition that the Knoll was anciently completely insulated, and that it was crowned by one of those strongholds, of which there are many vestiges still to be seen throughout Scotland, erected for the security of the population of the surrounding district, and their cattle and substance, in those troublous times, when life and property were held by a much more insecure tenure than in our own "piping times of peace". The Mound still bears evident marks of having once sustained a building of some kind, altho' [although] even the foundations of it have now almost entirely disappeared" Perthshire Constitutional September 30th. 1840
OS1/25/11/90 [Page 90] [Note to Mound:] "There are some remains of a building on a wooded Knoll near Ardblair, about a mile west from the town.

Close behind this house is the site of what is said to have been a very large cairn which was removed many years ago in excavating the foundation of the cottage some 40 years since a human skull was found inclosed within a stone cist, & a few years later Mr. Soutar found in his garden, a Roman coin of the Emperor Hadrian. "Following the road leading to Dunkeld, which diverges from the Perth Road a little to the westward of the Village, we must ask the reader to pause with us for a moment, at the first habitation by the wayside, a neat cottage belonging to Mr. Soutar, an old school fellow of ours some 2 score years ago. Mark we pray you that uninteresting looking heap of stones on the right hand, nearly opposite to the cottage gate. Reader, in that same heap of stones you see the remains of an ancient aboriginal Cairn, filled up perhaps 1700 years ago, over the bloody graves of brave men who here fought and died in the cause of freedom contending against the conquerors of the world. Many local names and unvarying traditions concur in pointing out this entire district as the theatre of extensive military operations at some remote period; and to some of these circumstances we shall have occasion to direct the readers attention by and by. ( See Kinloch Ph. [Parish]) The cairn in question was originally, even within our own recollection, of a large extent, covering a considerable space of ground on both sides of the present road including the site of the cottage and offices. But the improver has been here; a few a few years ago the last remnant of the Cairn was trenched to make way for the plough, and when that heap of stones is removed, nothing will serve to mark the spot where once it was. In excavating the foundation of the Cottage, some 20 years since, a human skull was found enclosed within 4 large flat stones, & a few years ago our friend Mr. Soutar found in his garden, a Roman coin of the Emperor Hadrian, which we have seen. It is of bronze or some composite metal, and is in excellent preservation, having a fine profile of the Emperor on one side, with the inscription "Hadrianus Aug. [Augustus]". And on the reverse a figure of justice, with some illegible hieroglyphics". Perthshire Constitutional September 30th 1840

"There is a small island in one of the Lochs, on which the traces of a building are still to be discerned, and tradition states that in times of peril the inhabitants of the surrounding district removed their most valuable effects to this island for safety. Whence the loch derived its name of the Stormount or Storemount". New Stat. Acct. [Statistical Account] ?
