Tour Amulree and Strathbraan Churchyard, Perthshire, Scotland. Amulree was at the junction of three major droves. It formed part of the route Highland drovers would use to bring their livestock to the cattle market at Crieff and Falkirk. Amulree Church was built between 1743 and 1752 and remodelled in 1882. Built to a simple design it has both a bellcote and wethervane. The architect was a John Douglas of Edinburgh. The Amulree church bell was cast in 1519.

The Celtic place name was Ath Maol Ruibhe meaning Maol Rubha's ford, across the river Braan.

    the building of Amulree church stopped in 1745 when the highlanders covered the foundations with turf and they went to fight with Bonnie Prince Charlie.
