Meigle is a village in Strathmore, Scotland. It lies in the council area of Perth and Kinross in the Coupar Angus and Meigle ward. The nearest town is Forfar in neighbouring Angus. Other smaller settlements nearby are Balkeerie, Kirkinch and Kinloch. Meigle is accessed from the north and south via the B954 road. Meigle was included in the locality of Alyth for the 2001 Census when the population for the division was 1871.Area historyThe Pictish stones on display at Meigle are a manifestation of the rich early history of the local area. As further testimony to the Pictish era approximately three kilometres to the east is the village of Eassie noted for the presence of the Eassie Stone; this carved Pictish stone is dated to the Early Middle Ages.AttractionsThe Meigle Sculptured Stone Museum is housed in the former Victorian village school and contains an important collection of more than thirty Pictish Stones, along with some later carvings, dating between the 8th and 10th centuries, many of them superbly carved (Historic Scotland; open April-end September, entrance charge). This collection is one of the finest of its type in Western Europe. The village was probably the site of an important Early Medieval Pictish monastery, centred on the present church and churchyard.
