and an old Mill
Where is Strageath ? ( Pronounced Stra -gayth )
From Crieff take the A822 Muthill Road and turn left at the Templemill sign on the left just before you reach Bennybeg .Follow this twisty road for about 2 miles . The site of the Roman camp is on the right hand side just before you reach Strageath Mill Farm ( OS reference NN8918 ) . Park your car in the lay by beside the farm and walk to the Mill and Churchyard .
The old Church is no more ! St Patrick’s Well is but a memory ! We read about it in the writings of the past :
" Strageath where the inhabitants till lately venerated St Patrick’s memory so highly, “that on his day neither the clap of the mill was not heard nor the plough seen to move in the furrow “.
