 Perthshire - LoveToKnow 1911
PERTHSHIRE, an inland county of Scotland, bounded N. by the shires of Inverness and Aberdeen; E. by Forfarshire; S.E. by the Firth of Tay and the counties of Fife and Kinross; S. by the shires of Clackmannan and Stirling; S.W. by the counties of Stirling and Dumbarton; W. by Argyllshire and N.W. by Inverness-shire.
The Ochils divide Perthshire from the shires of Clackmannan, Kinross and Fife.
The Forth, the principal natural boundary of the shire on the south, properly belongs to Stirlingshire, in which it rises, but its leading left-hand affluents are Perthshire rivers, namely, the Teith, the Goodie, issuing from the lake of Menteith, and the Allan, rising in the Ochils near Sheriffmuir.

 Perthshire on a small group Tour of Scotland.
Contrary, therefore, to frequent pronouncements, the true glory of Perthshire is not only its hills and lochs, however fine, for in these it can be excelled by Argyll and Inverness-shire, Ross or Sutherland; it is in its age-old settled lowlands, its characterful small towns and its unnumbered villages.
Basically, Perthshire is the basin and catchment area of the great River Tay; although the south-west section, or Menteith (more properly Monteith) as its name suggests, is the mouth of the Teith, principal tributary of the Forth.
Perthshire therefore is more like half a dozen counties than one, and even so, great semi-subdivisions such as Strathallan, Strathbraan, Strathardle, Rannoch, Glen Shee, Stormont and Mamlorn, have scarcely been mentioned, if at all.
