Notelets

For the duration of the second world war Blairgowrie and Rattray Town Council controversially avoided complying with the government edict to surrender all house railings to provide iron for the war effort. As a result the town retains some of the finest, original, railings in Scotland. Sets of notelets depicting some of the railings are available for sale. Look out for the Trust's stand at the local market. For further views of railings click 'House railings' in the menu on the left.


Leaflets

The Trust has a number of free leaflets dealing with various aspects of the area's history. These are available from the Trust's stand on market days during the summer season.
