St Madoes, Perth and Kinross

St Madoes is a village in the Carse of Gowrie in Scotland, developed around Pitfour Castle. It is believed, however, that there has been settlements in the beginning of the century due to the discovery of several standing stones, as well as the St Madoes stone, a well preserved Pictish cross. In terms of local amenities St Madoes has a small shop, two parks, a primary school and an 18th century church built upon earlier remains.
