Churches in Braco
Braco free Church
All that remains of this church are the old bell tower and the cemetery. At the door of the tower you'll find a carved stone plaque identifying it as a Free Church, established in 1844. This means that any religion could use the church as a place of worship. Although the free church dates back to 1844, this was a worship site for much longer, with historical evidence suggesting that a church has been located here since the ninth century. The cemetery has gravestones that are far older than the year of the founding of the Free Church. Today you'll find a memorial here to the dead of both World Wars.
Villages in Braco
Braco is a village located north of Dunblane and Stirling which has a current population of about 600. Today it is a transpit point between Crieff and Perth, and marks the end of the Braco-Dunblane route, a medieval pilgrimage dating back to the late Middle Ages. Braco is colorful, quiet and little-known despite an interesting past. It was founded in the late fourth century as an outpost of the Roman Empire known as Ardoch, which subsequently led to the construction of a Roman fort with the same name, small in size but designed to defend against Pictish hordes. There are three key sites worth visiting: the Free Church, the parish church, and the Roman ruins, which will hopefully be properly excavated and explored soon. This could lead to the town being declared a heritage site, which would encourage tourism.
