Tyndrum  Perthshire


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

Tyndrum (Gael. tigh-an-droma, 'house of the ridge'), a small post-office village in Killin parish, W Perthshire, at the head of Strathfillan, within 7 furlongs of the Argyllshire border and 35 miles SE of Ballachulish, whilst its station on the Callander and Oban railway (1873-80) is 36½ miles E by N of Oban and 17¼ W by N of Killin station. ...

Standing 700 feet above sea-level, it is described by the Queen, under date 22 Sept. 1873, as 'a wild, picturesque, and desolate place in a sort of wild glen with green hills rising around. . . . There are a few straggling houses and a nice hotel at the station.' See Clifton and Dalry.—Ord. Sur., sh. 46, 1872.
