Tour Scotland Comrie

Spent yesterday in Comrie, a small town situated towards the western end of the Strathearn district of Perthshire, Scotland, seven miles west of Crieff. Comrie sits at the confluence of three rivers. The Ruchill and the Lednock are both tributaries of the River Earn, which itself eventually feeds into the River Tay. The name Comrie is of Gaelic origin and means a place where rivers meet. The White Church, the former parish kirk, is Comrie's most striking building, with its prominent tower and spire situated on the roadside of the ancient churchyard at the heart of the village. This is an early Christian site, dedicated to the obscure early saint Kessog or Mokessog, who may have flourished in the eighth century.
