Forteviot: The return of the Pictish Stones!

A major milestone reached in the Forteviot Pictish Stones project last week with the conserved fragments of Pictish stones finally installed into a modified area of the church. Huge thanks to everyone in the Kirk Session and community for their ongoing support and enthusiasm.

Our contractors we fantastic and we would like to thank  the talented Jonny and Jamie of Dalmack Joinery who did some fantastic conservation grade joinery to get the interior ready to hold the display, and Richard West of Lightly West for his clever mount design and conservation work.

The Tay Landscape Partnership Area

The Tay Landscape stretches from Newburgh on the south side of the Tay Estuary around to Perth and along the Carse to Dundee.

The project, a £2.6 million initiative is principally funded by Heritage Lottery Fund, will enable locals and visitors to reconnect with the natural, built and cultural heritage of the area.
