Forteviot village was rebuilt by the first Lord Forteviot, Chairman of Dewar’s distillery, between 1925 and 1927 with attractive cottages and wide lawns laid out to a design by James Miller in the style of an English garden city. Forteviot is, however, much older than it seems. It was the ancient capital of the Pictish kingdom of Fortrenn and a favourite residence of Kenneth MacAlpin and Malcolm Canmore. Its church dates from 1778 and its village hall was opened by Sir Harry Lauder. Visit St Serfs Church in Dunning to see the Dupplin Cross, until recent years standing in a field on the Dupplin estate and now preserved in the interesting church of St Serf that has a Norman Tower.
Perth is a wonderful city to visit in its own right and is also the perfect base for exploring much of Scotland, with its golf courses (more than 40 in Perthshire alone), historic sites, mountains, scenic countryside and coast. Edinburgh, St Andrews, Glamis Castle, Stirling and Glasgow are all about an hour’s drive. Dundee, Pitlochry and Blair Castle about 40 minutes’ drive. The charming cathedral town of Dunkeld lies not far to the north of Perth, situated on the banks of the Tay in Perthshire’s Big Tree Country, it was also frequently visited on holiday by the children’s author Beatrix Potter to whom there is a dedicated garden and visitor centre. The famous Gleneagles Hotel Golf Courses are about 25 minutes’ drive. Walk on Kinnoull Hill, the nearby Moncrieffe Hill, the Sidlaws, the Ochils and the Dunkeld and Aberfeldy areas.
