Artney, Glen

A narrow valley of central Perth and Kinross, Glen Artney stretches over 8 miles (13 km) northeastwards from Glenartney Lodge to Cultybraggan. For all of its length it follows the course of the Water of Ruchill which joins the River Earn at Comrie. The Forest of Glen Artney, which lies between Glen Artney and Loch Earn, was once part of the royal deer forest of Strathearn supplying venison to the sovereigns of Scotland. The glen was immortalised in Sir Walter Scott's 'The Lady of the Lake':

The stag at eve had his fill,
Where danced the moon on Monan's rill,
And deep his midnight lair had made,
In lone Glenartney's hazel shade.
