In 1845, James Gillespie Graham collaborated with A W N Pugin to design the Chapel of St Anthony the Eremite for Sir William George Drummond Stewart of Grandtully, who had converted to Catholicism. It was constructed against an older structure that was remodelled as a mausoleum. The first Catholic place of worship in Scotland to be dedicated after the Reformation, the Chapel is particularly regarded for its interior decoration, including a mural depicting the conversion of Constantine.
