[Tullibardine Chapel]

Tullibardine Chapel is a beautiful church dating back to the 15th century, only a mile away from the luxury hotels, golf courses and spa of Gleneagles. It was built by wealthy local Sir David Murray, probably with its conversion to a collegiate chapel in mind (i.e. with a "college" of priests resident to pray for Sir David and his family), but this never happened and instead it just became a private church. The building survived the Reformation with little damage; you can still see masons' marks on the ceiling as well as the family coat of arms.
