Visit Bankfoot and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Bankfoot, Perth and Kinross. The villages of Bankfoot, Waterloo, and Cairniehill were built about 1800 on land feued by James Wylie of Airleywight; by 1838 most of the inhabitants lived by weaving or by employment in a linen-mill that still stands in Bankfoot village.
Beyond Bankfoot, the foothills of the Highland zone form a barrier that is not only physical but linguistic. Place-names South of the hills are typically Lowland Scots and contrast with the Gaelic derivation of Baihomish, Tomgarrow, and Kennacoil across the watershed in Strath Brun.
At Tullybeagles Lodge are two adjacent circles of standing stones. These prehistoric burial sites may be compared with similar pairs at Sandy Road and Shianbank near Scone.
