The history of Rosebank

David BorrieRosebank House was built in 1836 by a Dundee shoemaker, David Borrie. Originally he also owned much of the land around Rosebank, but over the years that has been sold off and built upon. But the house retains a large and impressive garden.

David Borrie was a member of the Free Church of Scotland and a few days before his death in 1885 took communion in that church. But when he died, his will revealed he had left £2000 to the Methodist Church to build a new church in Rattray, and Rosebank to be used as the manse. That church still stands by the bridge over the Ericht into Blairgowrie. It was sold for development in 2015 and the Methodist Church has loaned us two impressively dour Victorian paintings of Mr Borrie and his wife.

At some point the Methodists split Rosebank into two between ground and first floors, adding an outdoor stairway at the back to access the upstairs. Rosebank became a bed and breakfast around 1960.

The length (in miles) of a walk is an approximation of the overall of the walking guide, not a measure of the distance "as the crow flies" between any two points. This is based on the GPX file that was created when the author walked the route and rounded to the nearest mile.length

Grade (Boots)

The grade of a walk is an indicator of how difficult it is to walk. This does not take into account the walk length but does suggest how challenging the walk will be. An easy walk, graded as 1 (and shown as 1 walking boot) indicates a walk that is essentially flat, has no sharp hills to climb, has no stiles or other obstacles, is easy to navigate (probably along a well-worn path) and is suitable for most levels of fitness. Do be aware that the level of stamina required will vary and you should only walk within your limits - the indication of walk length will help with this. A difficult walk, graded as 5 (and represented by 5 boots) indicates a walk that is strenuous and involves steep ascents and/or descents. It may be technically challenging involving difficult terrain or obstacles.

Please note that the grading for walks is subjective and open to interpretation and should only be used as a guide when selecting a walk.
