The "K3" telephone box at Rhynd

Rhynd (About this sound listen ) is a hamlet in Perth and Kinross, Scotland. It is located 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) south-east of Perth, on the south side of the River Tay.

The parish church was built in 1842, and replaced an earlier church at Easter Rhynd, 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) to the south-east, where the churchyard can still be seen.[1] The village has an unusual "K3" telephone box, a concrete variant of the more common "K2", which is protected as a category A listed building as the only surviving example in Scotland.[2] The 16th-century Elcho Castle, built by the Wemyss family, lies 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) to the north, and is now in the care of Historic Scotland.[3]
