Forgandenny (Scottish Gaelic Forgrann Eithne, 'Over-Bog of Eithne' [an ancient female Gaelic name])) is a small village in Perth and Kinross, Scotland, located four miles south of Perth. Perth is a 20-minute bus ride from Forgandenny, and there is a regular Stagecoach service. It is 45 minutes from Edinburgh and one hour from Glasgow. There is a daily train service from Perth to London King's Cross.
Forgandenny has a church (of Norman origin, though the windows and doors are not original), village hall and a primary school. Its Post Office closed in 2020 after its owners for 32 years, Jim and Jacqueline Johnston, retired. "Everything is online," said Jim Johnston in April 2020. "The last few years all we have sold is sweets and soft drinks. It's time to put the feet up." The Post Office said it is committed to maintaining a branch in the village.
Gregory Ross released a book called Forgandenny, a Place in History (Forgandenny: Triuirdarach Publishing ISBN 9780955714207) on 1 December, 2007. The book tells the story of the history of Forgandenny and also includes Aberdalgie, Pathstruie, West Dron and Pitkeathly.
