Abercairny is an estate in the Scottish region of Perth and Kinross. It had the distinction of a short visit by Queen Victoria 12 September 1842, when she wished to see the mansion house, then under construction. The estate, owned by the Moray family since the 13th century, is located 4 miles east of Crieff.[1][2] It is included in the Inventory of Gardens and Designed Landscapes in Scotland.[3]
