Logierait Main Street and Hotel

View of Logierait village with carts outside the Logierait Hotel. Logierait is a village set in the mouth of Strathtay, on low ground near the River Tay where there was a ferry crossing. At one time it was a sizeable and important village with its own annual cattle fair and no fewer than six distilleries in the parish producing 65,000 gallons of spirit a year.

The hotel was an inn where William Wordsworth stayed in 1803. At the hotel was an old ash tree estimated to be 1,000 years old. It is said that the last man to be executed at Logierait was hanged from one of its branches. In the 1840's there were two inns and as many as seven ale-houses in the parish.
