Abernethy, Perth and Kinross - Wikipedia

Abernethy is believed to have been the seat of an early Pictish bishopric, its diocese extending westward along Strathearn. In the 12th century the bishop’s seat was moved to Muthill, then Dunblane, so that Abernethy, no longer being a residential bishopric is today listed by the Catholic Church as a titular see.[5]Abernethy remained the site of a small priory of Augustinian canons, founded 1272. 140 more words
