Our View

From the outside this historic church looks more like a whitewashed barn than a place of worship, but its simplicity and austerity is typical of pre-Reformation churches in Scotland. It dates to 1533, and was built for the Stewarts on the Grandtully Estate. In the mid-16th century some remodelling took place, including the addition of a barrelled, richly painted wooden ceiling, which remarkably survives, and is in striking contrast to the rest of the building. In curlicued roundels of fruit and flowers, saints, proverbs and Stewart family heraldry come to life.
