Old Photograph Station Road Errol Scotland


Old photograph of houses on Station Road in Errol, Carse of Gowrie, Perthshire, Scotland. Errol is located about halfway between Dundee and Perth. Errol is known for its reeds, which used to be collected up to a few years ago to make thatched roofs. These reeds grow in the banks of the River Tay and act as home to a fairly uncommon bird called the bearded tit. Errol has a large church, built in 1831, known as the Cathedral of The Carse. The street's name is probably derived from the fact that cows were herded down it for market days.
