Macrosty Park, Crieff

Macrosty Park is currently undergoing a major make-over

Macrosty Park, Crieff was opened in 1902. It is named after it's benefactor, James Macrosty, who was Provost of the town.

The park is probably the most picturesque in Scotland, with a fine collection of mature trees and the Turret Burn flowing through it.
 


The area on the west bank of the Turret is actually named Mungall Park after Walter Mungall, Provost 1913-25.

The Victorian bandstand, gifted by the brother of James Macrosty, has concerts in summer.



There are often activities and two children's play areas. A number of picnic tables are placed around the park, making it an ideal place for a day out in fine weather.
Fine view across western Strathearn and to Ben Chonzie can be taken in from the highest points in the park.

A mill was once sited in the park - the Weir and Lade which fed this and others downstream can be seen.
Macrosty Park is situated on the west side of Crieff at the foot of Milnab Street. There is a large car park. From here you can set off along Lady Mary's Walk. A beautiful path along the River Earn gifted to the town by Sir Patrick Murray of Ochtertyre House.
