About the Trust

The aim of the Trust is to promote the study of local history in the Blairgowrie - Rattray district.  It acts as a forum for its members who have wide ranging interests in such fields as local genealogy,  the history of the Blairgowrie mills, the berry industry, and the development of the town and district from prehistoric times.

The Trust supports local authors, organises historical displays, collects artefacts, and lobbies to preserve and protect  features of historical interest in the local area.

The Trust holds four meetings per year to which all interested persons are welcome.


Publications

The Trust publishes the excellent Social History of Blairgowrie and Rattray and Berry Treasured Memories, copies of which are available from the Trust secretary or from outlets in the town. It has also produced leaflets on various aspects of the history of the district. For more information, follow the link on the left.
