VillageJoin us in a voyage of discovery into the rich and varied heritage of Dunning. Go back with us through time and see the many facets which formed and shaped this community through the ages.

MapWe are nine miles south of Perth, just off the A9 to Stirling.

Dunning is still very much a living, working village, its residents a mix of all ages and interests. We have a population of 1000, two churches, three pubs, several shops, a primary school, two parks, a golf course, tennis courts and a bowling green. Dunning is steeped in history from the earliest times; there is an iron-age fort on the Dun Knock and a 1st century AD Roman camp at Kincladie. Saint Serf is said to have killed a dragon here, and there is a monument to Maggie Wall, burnt as a witch in 1657.


Who We Are

St Serf'sDunning Parish Historical Society, now in its 10th year, has over 300 members including several overseas. We are committed to gathering and disseminating local history. To that end we have accumulated a large and varied quantity of historical information both written and photographic. We hope our web site will serve as a readily accessible example of digital conservation of local history.

Museum photoHundreds of summer visitors are drawn to the village by road signs advertising St Serfs church. DPHS and the Community Council have combined to provide a visitor service which in the past five years has guided visitors from over 25 countries and most parts of the UK. The Society's publication of gravestone inscriptions has helped many visitors in their research.

magsunThe Duplin Cross, an important Celtic relic currently in the Museum of Scotland, will soon be moving to its new permanent home in Dunning.

Roughly painted on the stones of this 20 ft high monument one mile from Dunning are the chilling words "Maggie Wall burnt here 1657 as a Witch". What's it all about? Find out here.
