Aldclune is a village in Perth and Kinross, Scotland. It is situated on the A9 road, approximately 1.5 miles west of Blair Atholl, on the north bank of the River Garry.[1] At the eastern edge of the village is the site of the Battle of Killiecrankie, which took place in 1689 during the Jacobite rising of 1689–92.
