Tour Fortingall

Fortingall village is located in Perthshire, a few miles west of Aberfeldy. According to an unlikely legend the father of Pontius Pilate was a Roman officer on a mission here, and so this became the birthplace of his famous son. There is a very ancient yew tree in the churchyard. The village was rebuilt from 1889 in English arts and crafts style, designed by James Marjoribanks MacLaren for Sir Donald Currie of the Union Castle shipping line.

Fortingall is easily reached from Perth:
