Best Scottish Tours of Aberuthven

Best Scottish Tours of Aberuthven. Aberuthven was one of the earliest ecclesiastical foundations in Scotland. The Chapel is dedicated to St Cattan, Bishop and Confessor in the 6th century. In 1618, when Aberuthven Parish united with Auchterarder Parish, St Kattans lost its status as a Parish Church and fell into disrepair. The chapel, which is Statutory Listed Category B and a Scheduled Ancient Monument, is rectangular in plan and built of sandstone. There are two lancet, ogee-headed windows in the east wall and a 17th century bellcote on the west gable. During the 18th and 19th centuries three mausolea were built into the fabric of the ruined chapel. The Montrose Mausoleum which was built into the south wall of the chapel was designed by John Adam in 1736.
