Logierait

Logierait is a village and parish in Atholl, Scotland. It is situated at the confluence of the rivers Tay and Tummel, half a kilometre west of the A9 road.

It was the birthplace of the sociologist Adam Ferguson and the Canadian politician John McIntosh and Alexander Mackenzie, Canada's second Prime Minister.

Nearby is an ancient Ash tree, the Dule Tree of the district from which thieves and murderers were hanged.

The church is of early Christian origin, as is shown by the presence of two Pictish cross-slabs, one in the churchyard, the other, rediscovered in the 1980s, in the church. The present church building, however, dates from no earlier than the 18th century.
