The line from Crieff to Perth had several stations, but nothing on its route that could be called a proper village. No wonder passenger services didn't even make it to Beeching. This extract from the 1957 OS One Inch map shows the Perth end on the line. The first station out was Almondbank, which may have had a reasonable amount of custom. Next was Methven Junction. The branch to Methven (pronounced 'Meffen') closed in 1937, 14 years before the rest of the line. Note Perth Princes Street. Not very far from Perth General, but handier for the centre of town.
