Rhynd, Perth and Kinross

Rhynd is a hamlet in Perth and Kinross, Scotland. It is located 5 kilometres south-east of Perth, on the south side of the River Tay. The parish church was built in 1842, and replaced an earlier church at Easter Rhynd, 3 kilometres to the south-east, where the churchyard can still be seen. The village has an unusual "K3" telephone box, a concrete variant of the more common "K2", which is protected as a category A listed building as the only surviving example in Scotland.
