‘A characterful Church’

John R Hume considers the roots of Pitlochry Parish Church.

AFTER the Jacobite Rising of 1715 a system of military roads was built to link the Highlands with Lowland Scotland to allow Government troops to be deployed to counter any other attempt by Jacobite forces to attack from the north.

These roads were constructed by soldiers under the command of General George Wade. One of these roads ran from Dunkeld to Blair Atholl, along the rivers Tay and Tummel, and through the parish of Moulin. This was a rural parish, with a small village clustered round the parish church on a slope overlooking Strathtummel. Another settlement formed on the Wade road where a local road from Moulin met it. This grew into what is now Pitlochry.
