Administrative history

A new school house was first proposed in Balquhidder in 1869 by the Heritors of Balquhidder. This was to replace the old school buildings in the village. Land was offered by David Carnegie to help form a Schoolmaster’s garden in Kirkton farm and Balquhidder Public School opened on the 4th April 1873. The school closed on 31st March 1994.

Archival history

The records of Balquhidder Primary School were transferred to the Central Regional Council Archives by Perth County Council after the local government reorganisation of 1975. They have been held at the Archives since that date.
