Eaglesgate Retail Village, BlackfordBlackford lies just off the A9 trunk road which used to run through the village, but now bypasses it.

Blackford has been a stopping place on the journey north for a look time! Scotland's first public brewery was opened here using water from a renowned spring and James IV visited here in 1488 to sample their ale. The present Tullibardine malt whisky distillery was built on the site of the former Sharp's Brewery. Blackford also quenches the thirst of many by being the location of the Highland Spring water and its bottling plant.

The nearby world famous hotel, Gleneagles with its fine golf courses, opened in 1924.

Blackford is now the location of the Eaglesgate Retail Village which has a variety of retail outlets, two cafés and includes Tullibardine Distillery & Baxter's Visitor Centres.
