Logierait Church

On the way, to, or from, Aberfeldy, the Church at Logierait, Perthshire, Scotland, is always worth a visit. The church was founded by St Cedd around 650. Cedd was a missionary of the Celtic church of Iona. Alexander Mackenzie, was born in Logierait Parish, and was the second Prime Minister of Canada from November 7, 1873 to October 9, 1878. He was buried in the family grave in Logierait Church Yard. The headstone on the wall of the church, was erected by his widow and children many years later.
