[Muthill Old Church and Tower]

This church's striking arches and Romanesque tower dominate Muthill village, straight ahead of you as the main road bends left towards Crieff in the village centre. It may look like a single site, but the tower is much older than anything else in the village, built in the 1170s and originally a freestanding religious and defensive icon. The nave was added around the tower 3 centuries later, probably on the orders of Dunblane Cathedral. By the 1820s the congregation had moved elsewhere; soon after, parts of the stonework were used to construct an Episcopal church nearby, leaving the incomplete structure visible today.
