Tour Scotland video of the exterior of Aberdalgie Church in Strathearn, Perthshire. The earliest patrons of Aberdalgie were the Oliphants. Aberdalgie was united with the parish of Dupplin in 1618. The Oliphants were succeeded as patrons in 1625 by the Kinnoull family. The present church was erected by the Earl of Kinnoull in 1773. In more recent times the church has benefitted from the interest of the Dewar family who became lairds of Dupplin in 1911. Under the patronage of John Dewar, first Baron Forteviot of Dupplin, the prominent Scottish architect, Sir Robert Lorimer, remodelled the interior in 1929

Sir William Oliphant Tomb Aberdalgie Strathearn Perthshire Scotland April 28th [01:45]
Tour Scotland video of the Sir William Oliphant Tomb in the graveyard at Aberdalgie, Strathearn, Perthshire. In the Aberdalgie Churchyard, formerly inside the church before that moved, is the family vault where Medieval heads of Clan Oliphant are buried. Prominent among them is Sir William Oliphant, the resolute Governor of Stirling Castle when in 1304 it held out longer than any other against Edward I of England, during the Wars of Scottish Independence. Also buried there are Sir William's son, Sir Walter Oliphant, and his wife, Princess Elizabeth, the youngest daughter of King Robert the Bruce. The tomb was covered by an effigy which is the finest example of Tournai stone work in Scotland. From the design of the armour of the recumbent figure of the effigy, it has been dated to around 1365, which was some long time after Sir William died but fits most closely with the dates of Sir Walter and his Royal bride. The tomb is now the registered lair of the Chief of Clan Oliphant.
