Collegiate Church of Arbuthnott.

Picture Page. {These are large files - but worth the wait}

Tomb of Sir Robert Arbuthnott (died 1506) The tomb, lying under the windows in the southern apse of the aisle, is thought to be that of the founder of the collegiate church, Sir Robert Arbuthnott, who died in 1506. The ancient arms of the family are on the wall to the left.

Above the stone-vaulted roof of this aisle is the priest's room wherein were written the Arbuthnott Missal, Psalter and Office Book.

This aisle is all work of the 15th Century.
