In Nether Pitcairn, 3.2 km south-west of Grandtully, there is a church built in or shortly before 1533. It is a low and outwardly unassuming white washed building that contains a wooden tunnel vault ceiling with tempera paintings from the early 17th century. The paintings show scenes and persons from the bible intermixed with the coats of arms of kings and noblemen, and in addition an abundance of birds, fruits and angels, all depicted in a renaissance style with cartouches and imitated metal work. The paintings were restored in about 1950.[2]
