Tour Scotland video of bagpipes on ancestry visit to Blackford, Perthshire, Scotland. Pipe Band and solo Piper before and during the Highland Games. 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. James VII of Scotland even stopped in Blackford while travelling to sample their ale. The village became more prosperous by the nineteenth century with manufacturing including two breweries and with a healthy agricultural sector based on wool and flax.
