Amulree (Scottish Gaelic: Àth Maol Ruibhe, 'Ford of [St.] Maelrubha') is a small hamlet in Perth and Kinross, Scotland. It lies in hilly country on the A822 road, 1 km east of Loch Freuchie in Strathbraan, 8 km west of Dunkeld and 10 km north of Crieff.[1]

Its parish church contains copies of records of the large number of people who stayed there prior to mass emigration - mostly to North Easthope, Canada - in the early 19th Century. The church is linked with Aberfeldy Parish Church. An interesting history "Amulree and its Church" was written by a resident Nancy Enniskillen in 1990. A notable minister was James McLagan.
