Blairgowrie and Rattray is a twin burgh in Perth and
Kinross,Scotland. Amongst locals, the town is colloquially known
simply as "Blair". Blairgowrie is the larger of the two former
burghs which were united by an Act of Parliament in 1928 and lies on
the south-west side of the River Ericht while Rattray is on the
north-east side. Rattray claims to be the older and certainly Old
Rattray, the area round Rattray Kirk, dates back to the 12th
century. New Rattray, the area along the Boat Brae and Balmoral Road
dates from 1777 when the River was spanned by the Brig o' Blair. The
town lies on the north side of Strathmore at the foot of the
Grampian Mountains. The west boundary is formed by the Knockie, a
round grassy hill which is a popular walk and Craighall Gorge on the
Ericht. Blairgowrie and Rattray developed over the centuries at the
crossroads of several important historic routes with links from the
town to Perth, Coupar Angus, Alythand Braemar. The roads to Coupar
Angus and Braemar form part of General Wade's military road from
Perth to Fort George. The town's main feature and centrepiece is the
Wellmeadow, a grassy triangle in the middle of town which hosts
regular markets and outdoor entertainment.
Following the restoration of city status on Perth in 2012,
Blairgowrie and Rattray has become the largest town in Perthshire.
