Amulree  Perthshire

 

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

Amulree, a village in Dull parish, Perthshire, on the left bank of the Bran, 10 miles WSW of Dunkeld station. Its site was pronounced by Dr Buckland to have been fashioned by a group of low moraines: and the country around it presents an assemblage of wild, bare, rugged uplands, whose lochs and streams are favourite anglers' haunts. ...


The village has a post office under Dunkeld, an inn at which Wordsworth and his sister halted on 9 Sept. 1803, an Established church, and a Free Church station. The Established church, originally built by Government to serve for a district containing upwards of 1000 inhabitants, in 1871 was constituted a quoad sacra parochial church: and was rebuilt in 1881 at a cost of £900. Fairs for cattle and sheep are held at the village on the first Tuesday and Wednesday of May, and on the Friday before the first Wednesday of November, but they have sunk immensely in importance during the last 35 years.
