It is bounded on the north by Dunning; on the east by Orwell and Kinross; on the South by Cleish and Saline; on the West by Clackmannanshire; and on the north west by Muckart. Its greatest length is about 11 Miles; its greatest breadth about 10 Miles but its outline being very irregular, its superfecial Area is not more than about 50 Square Miles. The united parish consists of three districts of Fossaway in Perthshire one 6¼ Miles by 2½ on the South - one 3¾ by 1¾ lying 1½ Mile north of the former - and One a narrow stripe of half a mile by 2¾ lying a Mile eastward of the second and running parallel to it, all consolidated by the insertion amongst them of Tulliebole belonging to Kinross-shire. The northern parts of Fossaway and the part of Tulliebole which connects them constituting jointly the entire northern Section of the united parish are a continued congeries of hills running up to the Ochil range and lifting their tops from abou t1000 to 1500 feet above the level of the Sea The River Devon comes down upon Upper Fossaway from the west and runs south-eastward 3¾ Miles tracing the boundary line between that district and Tulliebole on the left bank and the parish of Muckart on its right bank; and making a sudden bend or Crook at the place appropriately called the Crook-of Devon flows 4¼ Miles south-eastward

Lower Queigh water rises in the northern limits of the northward stripe of Tulliebole forms for a Mile south-westward from its Source, the boundary between Dunning in Perthshire and debouching to the South-east so intersects for 3½ Miles the united Parish as to trace the boundary between the Perth-shire & Kinross-shire Sections. Two rivulets both called Gairney but distinguished by the prefixes East and West which designate the direction of their course, both rise in the Parish and meander along Copsewood banks. The villages are Blairingone and Crook of Devon, the former is a burgh of barony under the superiority of the Duke of Athole and has a market holden in the month of June, the latter is a Small Village and a burgh of barony and has a Fair in May and another in October. There is a great diversity of Soil in the Parish, in some parts it is mossy on others gravelly, in some parts clayey, and in others loamy, some of it is of good quality and not a little of it Very inferior. The parish is in the presbytery of Auchterarder, Synod of Perth & Stirling. The portion of the parish of Fossaway belonging to Perthshire appears as three detached portions but as these are joined by the other part of the parish belonging to Kinross Shire, therefore there is no detached portion of the parish, nor are there any detached portions of any other parish with that of Fossaway

It is Shewn on Stobie's Co. [County] map as a Circular hill fort and from the prefix "Car" there is good reason to believe or infer that it was a fort On the lands of Aldie there is rising a ground Carleith. On the middle of this ground are the ruins of an old building perfectly Circular and nearly 24 feet diameter. Not long ago the proprietor ordered this ground to be planted and the Stones were dug up to make the fence. When the work people were going on they found two Stone Coffins near the Centre. They were 4 feet long and 3 feet broad and Contained to all appearance Some human bones and teeth and Something resembling tallow which went to ashes as soon as exposed to the air. One of the Stone Coffins was destroyed before the workmen attended to it. The other was preserved entire, and Consists of 5 Stones pretty exactly joined together and a very large one for the Cover. Various conjectures are formed Concerning these ruins. Some imagine that it has been a place of worship others that it was a burying place and that some persons of distinction have been buried there.
