The Great Michael
I ran a “ blog “ in August 2012 on Tullibardine Chapel
Directly north of the Chapel is a large field It was in the centre of this that the now demolished Tullibardine Castle stood .There is a connection between the church and the castle . The Chapel was built by Sir David Murray away back in 1446 and it became the traditional burying place of the family – the Murrays of Tullibardine – until they moved northwards to Blair Castle near Pitlochry . The Castle which was demolished in 1830 was built in the 13th century by the Murray family and was the first Murray habitat in Perthshire. A Murray had married Adda , the daughter of the Seneschal of Strathearn , thus acquiring the lands of Tullibardine .
