  • The church itself is nothing out of the ordinary; however, the location is kind of an oasis in the middle of the busy main road through the village. It is nice to walk about the graveyard before visiting the church and listening to the explanation about the Duplpin Cross. The person that guided us was extremelly knowledgeable and very entertaining.
  • For anyone interested in Scotland's early history and prehistory this is an essential site to visit. The 3 metres high cross depicts King Constantine of The Picts, who ruled at the beginning of the AD 800s and some of his warriors, as well as lovely carvings of a harpist and various hunting dogs and other animals. It really conveys the inclinations of King Constantine son of Fergus. The beautiful church in which the cross stands is itself ancient, from the 1100s and is full of curious memorials dating back hundreds of years. The graveyard is also full of fascinating old graves. The village of Dunning is gorgeous as is the surrounding area, nestling in glorious Gleneagles, the great glen running from Perth to Stirling. The lady guide is very helpful and knowledgeable. I recommend purchasing the pamphlets offered about the area which are very interesting. Dunning/Forteviot was the capital of the Southern Picts. The area also seems to have been very important going back to Neolithic and Bronze Age Times with a huge timber monument having been constructed in antiquity.
