Tibbermore is a small village situated about 4 miles west of Perth, Scotland. Its parish extends to Aberuthven;[1] however, the church building is now only used occasionally for weddings and funerals.

Previously known as Tippermuir, it was the site of the Battle of Tippermuir between the Marquis of Montrose and an army of Covenanters.[2]

The church building is in a poor state of repair, however, restoration is being considered.[3]

Tibbermore has several listed buildings.
