Rattray is a town and parish in Perth and Kinross, Scotland, situated in the fertile farmland in the Strathmore Valley, 16 miles north-east of Perth. Rattray is a tourist resort and market town with visitor attractions and holiday accommodation. The River Ericht flows south through the town from the Cairngorms, dividing Rattray on the left side with its twin burgh, Blairgowrie on the right before arriving at the River Tay. Each is a separate parish with their own churches; they are connected by a four arch bridge 1871. Rattrays Craighall Castle originally built 17th century then completely rebuilt during the 19th century sits on a dramatic ledge perched precariously above the river Ericht, it is thought to be the castle described as Tully-Veolan in Walter Scott’s novel, Waverly. Rattray and Blairgowrie were industrial towns with eleven water-powered mills by 1860, turning flax into linen and processing Jute. The Keathbank jute mill, with the largest water-wheel in Scotland was added in 1870 on the Rattray side of the river. Rattray is located close to Glenshee, a popular resort for holiday makers enjoying skiing, hill-walking, hang gliding, pony trekking and golfing; with three courses to choose from. Blairgowrie also has a Recreation Centre.
