Ardle  Perthshire


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

Airdle or Ardle, a small river of NE Perthshire. It is formed by the union of two streams, the one descending from the Grampians in the E forest of Athole, along Glen Fernal,-the other descending from the W along Glen Briarachan: and it flows south-eastward along Strath-Airdle in Kirkmichael parish, and a little below Nether Traquhair unites with the Shee to form the Ericht. Its length of course is about 13 miles.
