St. Leonards Nunnery was a former Augustinian convent at Perth, Scotland.[1] After King Edward I of England's foray in Scotland in 1296, the Prioress swore fealty to him. The convent was annexed to the Carthusian Monastery at Perth by 1434 and was suppressed in 1438.

Elizabeth Dunbar, daughter of George I, Earl of March, was a prioress of the convent in the 14th-15th century.[2]
