Home >> Strathearn Towns >> Dunning

Dunning is situated at the south east of Strathearn. St Serf's church in the centre of the village was rebuilt in the 19thC but the tower is early medieval (12thC) with two-light arched Anglo-Saxon windows like Muthill Church.

Like so many Strathearn villages, Dunning was burnt after the Battle of Sheriffmuir by the retreating Jacobite army. However the village retains it's earlier pattern with later buildings (18-19thC) gathered around the hurch.

A standing stone outside the village is said to mark the site of the Battle of Duncrub in 964AD. A local woman, Maggie Wall, was burnt as a witch in 1657 and a monument commemorates this sad event.
