CARNIE-HILL, a village, in the parish of Auchter-gaven, county of Perth, 5½ miles (S. E. by S.) from Dunkeld; containing 133 inhabitants. This village, which is situated on the road from Perth to Dunkeld, on the summit of an elevated ridge, at the base of which is the village of Bankfoot, is almost identified with that place. It is of recent origin, having, like Bankfoot, been built within the present century, on land belonging to Mr. Wylie. The houses are neat, and, from their elevated site, command extensive and finely-varied prospects of the adjacent country, which is well cultivated, and abounds with interesting scenery. The inhabitants are chiefly employed in weaving for the manufacturers of Dundee, Arbroath, and other towns.
