Old Parish Church, Invergowrie

A dormitory village on the north shore of the Firth of Tay, 2½ miles (4 km) west of Dundee, Invergowrie now lies in Perth & Kinross Council Area, having formerly been incorporated in the City of Dundee.

Said to have been a royal point of embarkation, at which Alexander I planned to build a palace, Invergowrie was gifted to the monks of Scone in the Middle Ages. Its church, now known as Dargie Church, was allegedly founded by St. Bonifacius in the 8th Century and in the ancient churchyard are two large stones known as the Ewes (or Yowes) of Gowrie. Invergowrie toll-house stands nearby on the south side of the former Perth-Dundee turnpike road. The Scottish Crop Research Institute lies a quarter-mile (0.5 km) to the west.
