Old Kinross-shire

Old Kinross-shire, Scotland. The small and largely agricultural county of Kinross-shire has always enjoyed good communication links, and its market towns of Kinross and Milnathort provided coaching inns on the main Queensferry to Perth road in the days of the stagecoaches. The county has a distinguished architectural heritage, benefiting from the patronage of the Adam family who owned Blaircrambeth (later Blairadam) Estate, while also boasting both Loch Leven Castle and the impressive Kinross House, the latter designed by Sir William Bruce. As well as the two main towns, other locations illustrated include: Kinross Junction Station, Balado, Balgedie, Easter Balgedie, Kinnesswood, Scotlandwell, Blairadam Station, Cleish, Blairingone, Powmill, Rumbling Bridge (and Station), Crook of Devon, Carnbo, Tillyrie and Middleton.
