Fowlis Wester Cairn and Standing Stone


Tour Fowlis

Fowlis Easter village is located in the Sidlaw six miles northwest of Dundee, and is best known for its well-preserved 15th century church. It contains a rare example of a pre-Reformation painted wooden rood screen, originally used to separate the choir area
from the nave, but relegated to the walls by a disastrous
Victorian restoration.

Fowlis Wester village is located four miles northeast of Crieff which once thrived on weaving and agriculture. The 13th century church of St Bean, rebuilt in neo-medieval form by J. Jeffrey Waddell in 1927, has two 9th century Pictish cross-slabs, one of which shows Jonah being swallowed by the whale. A replica of a taller slab stands in the village. There are standing stones to the north of the village.
