  • We hiked from Kenmore to Fortingall so of course visited the old Yew tree, which is next to the church and a stone throw from Fortingall hotel, where we stayed. It's dubbed as possibly the oldtest tre...  more »

  • A few minutes to view the tree and church is well worth the time. Also the Fortingall Hotel has a bar right next door to the church as well as an excellent restaurant.  more »

  • Such a memorable place. Throughly recommended - the Kirk is beautiful, although someone recently stole the ancient bell, which is a real shame
  • Interesting stop. Not well marked at all, the yew tree is in the church courtyard. Fascinating to think this tree could be up to 5,000 years old!
  • This tree is one of the oldest vegetations of europe. 3000 to 9000 years old. Some of the stewarts are buried beneath. It's a magical tree and place. The history of the whole area is magnifique. Pontius Pilate is said to hail from the village as the romans exchanged well born children as hostages from local families to ensure peace.
  • If you love old trees, this is the oldest (allegedly) in Europe. Just seeing a living organism that predates Roman civilisation is quite a thing. If you have no imagination then there is a pub as well
  • Interesting, but not as impressive as Tane Mahuta
