Dull Church Perthshire Scotland

Dull Church, Perthshire, Scotland. The small hamlet of Dull is an ancient place, once the seat of a monastery founded in 687AD and comprises just a handful of houses about just three miles west of Aberfeldy. Dull and the surrounding area has been inhabited for at least 5000 years. Many remnants, stone circles, standing stones and hill forts, testify to inhabitants from around 3000 BC. The pre-Christian era came to an end with the arrival of the Romans, who only held the southern parts in temporary occupation. Dull is particularly connected with St Adamnan, also called Eonan. Irish born, he joined the Iona religious community and is famed for his biography of St Columba. He set up his religious cell in Glen Lyon using Dull as a place of solitude and retreat.

Dull Kirk was up for sale with offers closing by the end of October 2009.

Surely this is an historic building worth keeping as perhaps a small museum of the ancient history of Dull.

Has anyone informed the National Trust for Scotland or any other such body who may be interested in its historical preservation?
