Tour Scotland Video Drive To Blackford Perthshire



Tour Scotland video of a drive into Blackford, Perthshire, Scotland. The village is located just off the A9 between Perth and Stirling which has been bypassed since 1978. It is home to Highland Spring water and the Tullibardine whisky distillery.. Blackford was first known as a ford over the Allan Water. There is a legend that a King Magnus lost his wife Queen Helen in a storm and she is buried on a nearby hill. Blackford became a popular stopping place especially when Scotland's first public brewery was started. King James VII of Scotland even stopped in Blackford while travelling to sample their ale.
