From the outside I thought the church inside would appeal to me more than it did. The shape inside was unusual, the result of building from different periods. The best bit was the Pictish Dupplin Cross dating from 820 B.C. Good guided tour.

The exquisitely carved and historically extremely important Pictish Dupplin Cross is housed within a church containing stunning stained glass windows. The tours available from Historic Scotland guides provide all the details you could wish to know. I've repeatedly visited this amazing site.
