Forteviot Church Scotland [00:30]
Forteviot Church, Perthshire, Scotland. Forteviot was the site of an important Pictish settlement in the reign of King Oengus. With the defeat of the Picts by the Scots in the ninth century, Kenneth mac alpin had his palace there. Legend has it that the first Christian Church at Forteviot was built in response to the visit of Kilrymont, St. Andrews, monks to the valley during the eighth century. Certainly a basilica existed from the first half of that century. In 1165 William the Lion granted Forteviot to his chaplain, Richard of Stirling. From early in the thirteenth century, Forteviot was in the Deanery of Gowrie, Diocese of St. Andrews. The rector of Forteviot was a canon of St. Salvator's. After the Reformation, St. Andrews University became the patron. The present building, the third, was erected in 1778.

The castle sits atop Castle Hill, an intrusive crag, which forms part of the Stirling Sill geological formation. It is surrounded on three sides by steep cliffs, giving it a strong defensive position. Its strategic location, guarding what was, until the 1930s, the farthest downstream crossing of the River Forth, has made it an important fortification from the earliest times. Most of the principal buildings of the castle date from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. A few structures of the fourteenth century remain, while the outer defences fronting the town date from the early eighteenth century. Several Scottish Kings and Queens have been crowned at Stirling, including Mary, Queen of Scots, in 1543.
