Tour Scotland Rattray Parish Church

Tour Scotland Rattray Parish Church. Rattray is on the east bank of the River Ericht, and Blairgowrie is on the west. The town of Rattray, in Perthshire, dates back to the mid 11th century. The town, along with Blairgowrie, expanded greatly in the 19th century around the many jute mills on the river. These days Soft fruits such as raspberries, blueberries and strawberries are grown locally. The traditional ball game of Rattray no longer takes place, but the Rattray silver ball which was the trophy retained by the winners is still in existence. It is believed to have been donated by Sylvester Rattray of Nether Persie who became minister of Rattray in 1591 and continued there until his death in 1623. The Rattray silver ball is now kept at Perth Museum and Art Gallery.
