West Stormont Historical Society
The land west of the Tay, north of the Almond and south of the Grampian Mountains is known historically as West Stormont. The area encompasses the parishes of Auchtergaven, Kinclaven, Logiealmond, Moneydie, Redgorton, and the Murthly portion of Little Dunkeld.
West Stormont Historical Society promotes and encourages the study of local history in this part of rural Perthshire. Society members have carried out considerable research into the people, places, industry, events and social developments that are formative in the creation of the area’s essential historical character. Historical records and photographs have been collected, archaeological sites have been explored and recorded, local houses and buildings have been surveyed, and biographies of local personalities have been researched and published. The Society produces a quarterly newsletter.
West Stormont Historical Society has between 80 and 100 members and is one of the most active local history group in Perthshire. Around 16 member meetings and public talks are held between September and May each year to educate and entertain within a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Excursions and walks are also made to places of historical interest during the summer months.
