Blairlogie, a village in the Perthshire section of Logie parish, at the mouth of Glendevon and at the base of Dumyat (1375 feet), 3 miles ENE of Stirling. It is a pleasant little place, remarkably healthy; and, till eclipsed by Bridge of Allan, was long a favourite summer resort of invalids. It has a post office under Stirling and a U.P. church and manse. Blairlogie Castle, now a farmhouse, a little NW of the village, dates from the year 1513, was the seat of the Spittal family, and retains some vestiges of bygone splendour. Pop. (1881) 94.
