Perth and Kinross

A hamlet in a parish of the same name in Perth and Kinross, Rhynd lies between the River Tay and Moncreiffe Hill, 4 miles (6 km) southeast of Perth. The Tudor-Gothic parish church dating from 1842 replaced an earlier church whose ruins can be found at Easter Rhynd, near the confluence of the Earn and the Tay. In addition to its 19th-century cottages, the hamlet of Rhynd has Scotland's only K3 telephone kiosk, produced from 1929 to designs by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott. To the north at Elcho, overlooking the Tay, stands Elcho Castle a former stronghold of the Wemyss family.
