Lying about eight miles from Perth, Wolfhill offers a family friendly enviroment with a community spirtit. The area boasts a rich history, the most remarkable story being that of James Croll, who sadly, to date, has not received the recognition he deserves.
Wolfhill as is now, started out as two different settlements.
Carolina, named after Queen Caroline (wife of George IV). Carolina was part of Craigmakerran estate, the first feus were issued by the Guildry Incorporation in 1826, unfortunately this was not deemed to be a successful settlement.
Wolfhill seems to have come about by default, Lady Willoughby D'Ersesby evicted tennants from Whitefield area offering the boggy area of Wolfhill in recompense, it would be theirs if they could clear it!
There are a couple of theories as to the origins of the name Wolfhill, one was that the last know wolf was killed here ( also claimed elsewhere), the other is that the 'Wolf of Badenoch' ( Alexander Stewart, Earl of Buchan) camped here. Snipetown is another name Wolfhill has gone by, even in recent times.
