Take a Pride in Perth & Kinross



The village of Blackford lies approximately 8 km from Auchterarder, just off the A9 between Perth and Stirling. It is home to two major drink-producing companies, the Highland Spring Water Company and the Tullibardine whisky distillery.

The voluntary group 'Blackford is Brighter' was formed in 1997 to enhance the local environment. Since then, volunteers have provided many lovely displays, including  hanging baskets, troughs and half barrels filled with flowers and placed along the main street.

With sponsorship from Highland Spring Water Company Ltd an old farm cart, with traditional wooden wheels, has been installed in a flower bed at the entrance to the village to create a distinctive feature (pictured left).
