KILSPINDIE [Parish] (Continued) [continued from page 1]
husbandry that has been pursued, for many years, is very superior. The farms are kept under excellent management; and all are provided with thrashing mills. Perth and Dundee are the nearest market towns, distant about 8 and 13 miles respectively from the parish Church. There are three small villages, Kilspindie, Rait, and Pitroddie. In each of these a few hands are employed in the manufacture of linen fabrics for Dundee Market.
The Church, with its surrounding burying ground, encompassed by spreading elms and ash trees, stands in the village of Kilspindie, on a rising ground, formed by the junction of two small rivulets. The situation is delightful and well chosen for the convenience of the majority of the population. It is a plain building, comfortably seated for about 350, and in a good state of repair. The manse, which is old, is situated within a hundred yards of the Church. The stipend consists of 15 chalders, half meal, half barley. There are two glebes, and the rent of both may amount to Thirteen Pounds. New Statistical Account.
The parish contains 6258 Statute acres by computation from the Ordnance Plans. There are no detached portions of this parish, nor are there any detached portions of another parish situated within it.
