"KILSPINDIE, a parish in the Gowrie district of the county Perth, Scotland, 5 miles N.E. of Perth. It is situated in the Carse of Gowrie, near the Dundee and Perth line of railway. It includes the villages of Kilspindie, Kait (post-office), and Pitrodie. This parish is in the presbytery of Perth, and synod of Perth and Stirling. The minister's stipend is £225. The church, which is a plain modern structure, is situated in the village of Kilspindie. The parishes of Kilspindie and Kait were united early in the 17th century. The ruins of Kait church are still visible. It was here that the mother of Sir William Wallace found refuge, and whence Wallace went to attend school at Dundee. The glens and lower grounds are exceedingly productive, but the upper districts are heathy and barren."
