Perth and Kinross

©2022 Gazetteer for Scotland


A small village in central Perth and Kinross, Gilmerton is situated a mile (1.5 km) to the northeast of Crieff at the junction of the A85 road from Perth to Crieff with the A822 road which heads north through the Sma' Glen to Aberfeldy. The neighbouring estate of Cultoquhey was owned by the Maxtone family for five centuries, their survival being attributed to the so-called Cultoquhey Prayer written by an eccentric laird in the 1700s:

From the greed of the Campbells,
From the Ire of the Drummonds,
From the pride of the Grahams,
And from the wind of the Murrays,
Gude Lord preserve us.
