Perth and Kinross

©2022 Gazetteer for Scotland


A village in Perth and Kinross, situated 3 miles (5 km) northeast of Dunning and 6 miles (9 km) southwest of Perth, Forteviot was rebuilt by the first Lord Forteviot, Chairman of Dewar's distillery, between 1925 and 1927 with attractive cottages and wide lawns laid out to a design by architect James Miller (1860 - 1947) in the style of an English garden city. Forteviot is, however, much older than it seems. It was the ancient capital of the Pictish kingdom of Fortrenn and a favourite residence of Kenneth MacAlpin and Malcolm Canmore. Its church dates from 1778 and its village hall was opened by Sir Harry Lauder.
