and Perthshire: Including Kinross... This guide covers
a varied landscape area that is accessible to the highly populated
Central Lowlands of Scotland, including the great cities of
Glasgow and Edinburgh. Human endeavour, coupled with a proud
colourful heritage, is evident everywhere, in the pretty and
historic coastal towns such as St Andrews, in the rolling
Lomond Hills and scenic Loch Leven, and, moving further north
towards the higher ground, in the mountainous areas around
Pitlochry, where the autumn colours have to be seen to be
believed. Visits to the area are addictive, causing many to
return again and again to the ancient "kingdoms"
of Fife and Perth, legendary birthplace of the heartland of
Scotland, for further exploration and pleasure.

Railways of Upper Strathearn,Crieff... When a journey
by motor car along the A85 from Comrie to Crieff occupies
a mere 10 minutes, it is difficult to imagine the tremendous
enthusiasm with which the people of Comrie welcomed the arrival
in 1893 of the branch line from Crieff. Comrie, along with
the other villages in Upper Strathearn between Crieff and
Lochearnhead, had been steadily increasing in size and prosperity
in the second half of the 19th century but still depended
on stagecoaches and general carriers for communication with
the outside world.
