Blairgowrie – full name Blairgowrie and Rattray – is a town in Perthshire, central Scotland. It's the largest town in the area, ever since Perth was designated a city in 2012. Several centuries ago, it was an important centre for flax spinning. Today, it's known for something different – soft fruits, especially raspberries.
When there's a golf tournament on, Blairgowrie hotels get quite busy. It's also a popular angling spot and holds its own Highland Games, bringing lots of people to town throughout the year.
Architecture and nature
Blairgowrie used to have 12 flax spinning mills. They were clustered along the banks of the River Ericht, powered by the flowing water. The last one closed relatively recently, in 1979. Oakbank Mill is still standing, and classed as a historical monument.
In the centre of town, the Wellmeadow is where local markets are held. There's a war memorial in the middle, dedicated to both WWI and WWII.
