Blairgowrie Old Parish Kirk by 

Blairgowrie Old Parish Kirk on the Hill of Blair.

Blairgowrie and Rattray (Blàr Ghobharaidh and Raitear in Gaelic, Blairgowrie – likely Scottish Gaelic Blàr Ghobharaidh and Rattray – possibly from an English language cognate of Scottish Gaelic ràth, meaning fortress + a Pictish term cognate with Welsh tref, meaning settlement) is a twin burgh in Perth and Kinross, Scotland. Amongst locals, the town is colloquially known simply as “Blair”.

The second largest town in Perth & Kinross this twin burgh lies in the Strathmore Valley and straddles the River Ericht, which flows into the River Isla and then the River Tay. Rattray is on the east bank and Blairgowrie is on the west.

The town expanded greatly in the 19th century around the many jute mills on the river. It is the market town for the surrounding area and a centre for holidaymakers. Blairgowrie is well known as a passing point for tourists and ski-ers. The town of Rattray dates back to the mid 11th century.
