Perth and Kinross

A location overlooking the River Tummel in North Central Perth and Kinross, Fonab is located a half-mile (1 km) south of Pitlochry. The name comes from Gaelic, meaning Abbot's land, the area having come into the possession of the monks of Coupar Angus Abbey in the 12th century.

Today, there is a camping and caravan site at Milton of Fonab, a farm at Middleton of Fonab and houses at Littleton of Fonab and Overton of Fonab. Fonab Castle (formerly Port-na-Craig House) was built in 1892 for the Sandeman family, noted importers of port and sherry in London. Fonab Business Park is located nearby. Fonab Hill rises to the southwest and Fonab Cemetery, which opened in 1957, is now the principal burial ground for the district. The Rob Roy Way passes through the locality.
