Perth and Kinross

A farming and commuter village in Perth and Kinross, Airntully lies to the west of the River Tay, 8 miles (11 km) north of Perth. It is an old fermetoun village that thrived on cottage weaving in the 18th Century. Although it has a relatively unspoilt charm today, the anonymous writer of the Old Statistical Account of the Parish of Kinclaven in the 1790s was not impressed by the backward state of the village, commenting that "The county of Perth, were it possessed of no other spot of a similar description, should allow Arntully [sic] to remain in its present state, that a proper contrast might be drawn, between a neat modern village, and one upon the old construction".
