Tour Scotland Video Summer Drive To The Parish Church In Muthill Perthshire

Tour Scotland video of a Summer drive to the Parish Church on ancestry visit to Muthill, Perthshire, Scotland. Once an important religious centre and the site of a Celí Dé monastery. The church here also served for a time as a seat of the Bishops of Strathearn, later Dunblane, before the building of the cathedral at Dunblane in the 13th century. The village was largely destroyed in the 1715 to 1716 Jacobite rising, being rebuilt in the 1740s as it lay on the route of General Wade's military road through Strathearn. The kirkyard at the centre of the small town contains the ruins of an important 15th century parish church, which incorporates an 11th century bell-tower, built on the orders of Michael Ochiltree, Bishop of Dunblane.
