or Strath
Earn (/stræθˈɜːrn/, from Scottish Gaelic: Srath Èireann) is the strath of the River Earn, in Scotland.[1] It extends from Loch Earn
Loch Earn
to the River Tay, and was bounded on the north by Atholl, north west by Breadalbane, south west by Menteith, south east by Fife, and on the east by Perthia. The region formed a traditional province of Scotland, and hence had a mormaer and then an Earl. Royal dukedoms of Cumberland and Strathearn, of Kent and Strathearn and of Connaught and Strathearn
have been awarded to members of the British Royal Family. Prince William was created Earl of Strathearn, as a subsidiary title to Duke
of Cambridge, on 29 April 2011, the day of his wedding to Catherine Middleton. In medieval times, the sheriff based at Perth covered Strathearn
as part of their duties. As a result, when 19th century local government reforms replaced the ancient provinces by new Counties (shires), based on sheriffdom boundaries, Strathearn
became the south-central part of Perthshire. As a result of late 20th century reforms, it is now part of Perth and Kinross
