Muthill, Perth and Kinross

Muthill, pronounced [ˈmjuːθɪl ˈmjuːθɪl], is a village in Perth and Kinross, Perthshire, Scotland. It lies on the former railway line connecting Perth and Crieff, 3 miles south of Crieff. The name possibly derives from Moot hill, a place of judgement. The ancient village was once an important religious centre and the site of a Celí Dé monastery. The church here also served for a time as a seat of the Bishops of Strathearn before the building of the cathedral at Dunblane in the 13th century.
