Ardle, Strath


(Strathardle)

A valley of NE Perth and Kinross, Strath Ardle (also Strathardle) extends northwest from Bridge of Cally towards Straloch where it divides into Glen Brerachan and Glen Fearnach. The glen carries the River Ardle from its formation at the junction of the Allt Fearnach and the Brerachan Water to join the Black Water to form the River Ericht. The principal settlement in the valley is Kirkmichael.

Strath Ardle is said to have been named after a Pictish Leader called Ardle, whose grave, known as the Giant's Grave, can still be seen at Enochdhu. The valley is replete with archaeology, including standing stones, hut circles and ancient field systems.
