Kinclaven


Perth and Kinross

A location in a Perth and Kinross parish of the same name, Kinclaven lies in a bend of the River Tay opposite its confluence with the River Isla, 10 miles (16 km) north of Perth. Directly opposite the mouth of the Isla stand the ruins of 13th-century Kinclaven Castle which was a favourite haunt of King Alexander II. The six-arched bridge over the Tay here was built in 1903-05 and is the last road bridge before Perth. The parish church, rebuilt in 1848, is approached through an attractive War Memorial Lych Gate erected in 1919 and in the kirkyard is an elaborate memorial to Alexander Cabel, Bishop of Brechin completed c.1608.
