(Joan Blaeu, Atlas Major 1662-5)
West Stormont, historically, was the land west of the River Tay extending to Harrietfield and north of the River Almond, but south of the Birnam Gap near Dunkeld. Within it lie the parishes of Auchtergaven, Kinclaven, Logiealmond, Moneydie, Redgorton, and the Murthly portion of Little Dunkeld.
One ancient description says it “hath in lenth 10 myls in breadth 9 myls.”
West Stormont Historical Society promotes and encourages the study of local history in this part of rural Perthshire.
Our work may be of interest if you have kith, kin or connections in or around Airntully, Bankfoot, Chapelhill, Luncarty, Moneydie, Murthly, Pitcairngreen, Redgorton, Stanley, and Waterloo.
Over the decades, Society members have carried out considerable research into the people, places, industry, events and social developments formative in the creation of the area's essential historical character. Historical records and photographs have been collected, archaeological sites explored and recorded, local houses and buildings surveyed, and biographies of local personalities researched and published.
Our work is ongoing.
