Located in Tibbermore, a few miles east of Perth, Tibbermore Parish Church appeared in season 1 of Outlander in episode 11, “The Devil’s Mark”. It played the part of the court used in the witch trial. Viewers will no doubt remember Claire and Geillis sitting in the dock, accused of witchcraft. Despite the best efforts of Ned Gowan, Geillis is sent from here to be burned, as Jamie rides off with Claire.
Tibbermore Church is immediately recognisable as the witch court, making it well worth the visit. However, visitors need to be aware that access to the church needs to be organised in advance. Owners, the Scottish Redundant Churches Trust (SRCT), require that anyone wanting to enter the building first contact the church’s keyholder to arrange entry. The keyholder can be reached by telephone at 0131 563 5135 or 07780 682961, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
