Bridge of Earn developed around the first bridge over the river which dates from at least the time of Robert the Bruce, who was known to have ordered repairs to it. Its location as an important crossing on the main route from Edinburgh to Perth ensured it thrived, and the arrival of the railway in the 19th century boosted the local economy even more. Today it continues to be popular as a dormitory town for those employed in Perth or Edinburgh. This little book tells the story of the town and the nearby villages of Forgandenny, Forteviot and Dunning since the late 19th century.
