Cottages at Kintillo, Bridge of Earn

View of the village of Kintillo by Bridge of Earn showing single storey houses with thatched roofs and a roadway.

Kintillo claims to be the oldest village in Scotland. It was probably rebuilt as thatched cottages from the late 18th century. Originally there were pendicles or strips of arable land each with a byre and a shed which lay to the south. In the New Statistical Account of 1842 there were a total of 108 people living in Kintillo and a total of 36 families. The end of the village terminated in a magnificent gateway which was the principal approach to Kilgraston House devastated by a fire in 1872.
