Dunning

Interesting little village to the South West of Perth


Five miles east of Auchterarder, and eight miles southwest of Perth, is the historically interesting little village of Dunning, once the capital of the Picts and the place where Kenneth I, king of the Picts and Scots, died in 860. The village was burned to the ground by the Jacobites in 1716 and the only surviving building is the 12th-century Norman tower of St Serf's church.

A mile west of the village, by the B8062, is Maggie Walls Monument, which commemorates the burning of a local witch in 1657.
