Rhynd is a hamlet and parish in south-eastern Perthshire. It is located three miles south-east of the county town, Perth, on the south side of the River Tay.

The parish church was built in 1842, and replaced an earlier church at Easter Rhynd, two miles to the south-east, where the churchyard can still be seen.[1] 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.[2] The 16th-century Elcho Castle, built by the Wemyss family, lies half a mile to the north, and is now in the care of Historic Scotland.[3]
