Dalguise Village

Dalguise, is an interesting and pretty wee village in central Perth and Kinross. It lies to the west of the River Tay, 5 miles (8 km) northwest of Dunkeld. The Dalguise Estate was given to the church of Dunkeld by William the Lyon and later fell into the hands of the Stewart family. Dating from 1753 with later additions, Dalguise House was rented for eleven summers between 1871 and 1881 by Rupert Potter, father of Beatrix Potter (1866-1943) the author of children's books. The nearby Dalguise railway viaduct on the Inverness line was built in 1861-63 to a design by the engineer Joseph Mitchell. The Dalguise Village Hall has regular events.
