"LOGIERAIT, village and parish in north of Perthshire. The village stands on peninsula between the Tay and the Tummel, nearly in line with railway viaducts across these rivers, 8½ miles north-north-west of Dunkeld; maintains carriage ferries on the two rivers; was long the seat of the Athole family's regality courts; had then a grand court-hall and a prison, the place of Rob Roy's incarceration under sentence of the court; and has now a post office designated of Perthshire, Established and Free churches, and a public school with about 166 scholars. The parish contains also Ballinluig village and part of Aberfeldy town; consists of a number of detached sections, one of them 19 miles west of the village; measures, apart from intersections, about 12 miles in length, and 4.5 in mean breadth; and comprises 37,759 acres. Real property in 1880-81, £18,288. Pop., quoad civilia, 2323. The main body around the village is remarkably beautiful, but much of the detached districts is wild upland. A number of fine mansions are in the main body; and ruins of a castle, said to have been a residence or hunting-seat of King Robert III., are near the village. Established, Free, Congregational, Baptist, and Episcopalian churches, and a large public school, are in Aberfeldy."
