Kilspindie village

In the Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland (1882–84) Francis Groome described Kilspindie:

Kilspindie, a village and a parish in Gowrie district, SE Perthshire. The village, standing in the mouth of a small glen, 1 mile SSW of Rait, 2⅛ miles NNW of Errol station, and 3⅜ NNE of Glencarse station, had anciently a castle, now extinct, and figures in Blind Harry's narrative as the place where Sir William Wallace, with his mother, found refuge in his boyhood.[2]
