Kinloch  Perthshire


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Kinloch like this:

Kinloch (Gael. eeann-loch, 'head of the loch'), a hamlet and a parish of NE Perthshire. The hamlet stands 2 miles W by S of Blairgowrie. The parish is bounded N by Bendochy (detached), E by Blairgowrie and Caputh (detached), S by Lethendy, SW and W by the main body or detached sections of Caputh and Clunie, and NW by Blairgowrie (detached). ...

Its utmost length, from NNW to SSE, is 65/8 miles; its utmost breadth is 3 1/8 miles; and its area is 5493 acres, of which 176¾ are water. The Airdle runs 9 furlongs eastward along the northern boundary; and Lornty Burn runs 2¾ miles east-south-eastward across the middle of the parish, in whose southern division are three lakes, Drumellie (1 mile x 3¼ furl.), Ardblair or Rae Loch (6 x 11/3furl.), and Fingask Loch (3 x 2 furl.). Sinking in the extreme S to 139 feet above sea-level, the surface thence rises north-north-westward to 500 near Ballied and 1252 on Cochrage Muir, whence again it descends to 580 feet along the Airdle. Rather less than one-half of the entire area is in tillage, nearly one-twelfth is under wood, and all the rest of the land is either pastoral or waste. The chief antiquities are noticed under Haer Cairns and Glasclune. Mansions are Marlee House and Ballied; and the property is divided among five. For ecclesiastical purposes this parish has been united to Lethendy since 1806. Valuation (1883) £4236, v16s. 8d. Pop. (1801) 367, (1831) 402, (1871) 251, (1881) 252.—Ord. Sur., sh. 56, 1870.
