Descriptive Gazetteer Entry for Bridgend

Bridgend, an eastern suburb of Perth, in Kinnoull parish, on the left bank of the Tay. Here lived the paternal aunt of Mr Ruskin.. ` She had, ' he writes, ` a garden full of gooseberry bushes, sloping down to the Tay, with a door opening to the water, which ran past it clear brown over the pebbles 3 or 4 feet deep; an infinite thing for a child to look down into. ' See Kinnoull and Perth.
