Tour Scotland Video Drive From Scone To Blairgowrie Perthshire
Tour Scotland video of a morning drive from Scone through Burrelton and Coupar Angus on ancestry visit to Blairgowrie, Perthshire, Scotland. Blairgowrie was made a barony in favour of George Drummond of Blair in 1634 by a royal charter of Charles I, and became a free burgh in 1809. In 1724 the military road from Coupar Angus to Fort George which passes through the town on the line of the A923 and A93 was completed. The town expanded hugely in the 19th century thanks to the employment provided by the many textile mills which were built along the River Ericht, all now closed.
