The village of Comrie lies on the banks of the River Earn, in the heart of the scenic West Strathearn area of Perthshire. It is situated at the meeting of Glens Lednock and Artney, with the beautiful Scottish Highlands rising to the North.
The Comrie in Colour voluntary group and has won many awards in Take A Pride in P&K, Beautiful Scotland, and Britain in Bloom competitions.

War Memorial Project
In 2022 we agreed to support Comrie in Colour in delivering a new new project aimed at enhancing the War Memorial gardens.
The aim is to take a lower maintenance approach to the site whist making it more beautiful, environmentally sustainable and accessible for community events such as Remembrance Day. A feature will also be created to celebrate the life of John Manson Craig VC, a native of the village who won the Victoria Cross in 1917. Support for the project has been received from the local community and fundraising got underway in 2023.
