Village in Scotland famous for its berries and music. In season, many Travelers and townspeople come to help in the picking, and informal music-making sessions take place in the evenings after the picking is over. An annual music festival is also held. Belle Stewart and her family are closely associated with Blairgowrie, and she wrote the song "The Berryfields o' Blair" in the 1920s.
