Muthill is a small place, smaller than Comrie and much smaller
than Crieff. I would be very surprised if these other places had
ever come under Muthill for any administrative purpose. The only
parish I have come across that was for a while part of Muthill is
I have looked at a mid-1800s Ordnance Survey six inch to the mile
map of the area and have not found anywhere that looks or sounds
anything like Gualnacarrie. I do not believe there are any
earlier map series out there to give place names that were changed
or disappeared later. The name is not listed in Scotland's places
or on Canmore (the archaeological site website).

knew that most of those locales were close to Muthill, but
I’m still wondering whether they would have been “part of”
Muthill and so BDMs would have been recorded in the Muthill
then, Gualnacarrie is still elusive ….
You can find all of these places except Gualnacarrie with a
simple search on Google Maps. A few miles west of Perth you
come to the small town of Crieff, and most of the places you
mention are outlying villages, hamlets or individual
properties. Travelling west from Crieff along the main A85
road you find Loch Monzievaird, then Monzievaird House, the
you cross the Clathick Burn and then a bit further on you come
to the small town / large village of Comrie. Back at Crieff,
if you head south on the A822 road you find Muthill and if you
head east from Muthill back towards Perth you find Trinity
Gask (which appears also to be called Kirkton). Gualnacarrie
may not exist any more or may have changed its spelling.
Maybe you would be able to find it in the vicinity of one or
other of the other places by looking at the 19th Century maps
that you can access on the Scotland's Places website or the
John (only very tenuous connections to Perthshire)

I’m looking at a page
in a book which is named parochial registers of MUTHILL,
Perth but the writing at the top of the register page says
“COMRIE January 1795”.
Was COMRIE part of
MUTHILL? What other locales were also in MUTHILL?
The entry I am
interested in is for an Archibald SINCLAIR “in
Does anyone know
what/where was Gualnacarrie? And how it relates to
CLATHICK, MONZIEVAIRD or TRINITY GASK? [The family seems
to have moved a lot]
