Mason's Gravestone, Kinfauns

A village at the western end of the Braes of the Carse, in E Perth and Kinross, Kinfauns overlooks the River Tay, 3 miles (5 km) east of Perth. The ruined pre-Reformation church of Kinfauns dates from the 15th-century but stands on the site of a chapel of Scone Abbey that existed as early as 1226. The more modern parish church dates from 1869, the manse (Kinfauns House) from 1799 and a T-plan schoolhouse from 1832. The Gothic Kinfauns Castle to the west was designed in 1820-26 by Sir Robert Smirke for Francis, 14th Lord Gray. It was a hotel for many years before returning to serve as a private residence. Agricultural holdings were established at West Kinfauns (Walnut Grove) in the 1930s.
