Tullibardine Chapel

Tullibardine Chapel is a small medieval church founded by the Murray family for the use of the Earls and Dukes of Atholl. Marquis of Tullibardine is the title of the eldest son to the Duke of Atholl. It is one of the most complete and unaltered small medieval churches in Scotland, founded in 1446 and largely rebuilt about 1500. The church today is no longer in use, but much of the architectural detail has survived. Location: 2M NW of Auchterarder off the A823 Crieff road. Opening Times: Open Summer Only.
