St Mary's Church (Grandtully)

[St Mary's Church]

From the outside it's an unassuming, run-of-the-mill farm building. Why do Historic Environment Scotland bother having this in their tourist portfolio? - you might think. But first appearances can be deceiving: open the door, flick on the lights and gaze upwards. Here you'll find a magnificent painted ceiling, added to the 1533 exterior a century or so later. Portable panels explain the various sections, with death and the final judgement at the centre. Well worth the short drive from nearby Aberfeldy.
