Dull is a village located in the county of Perth & Kinross in Scotland. situated in the highland part of the county, dull consists of a single street of houses on the north side of the valley of the River Tay. the place-name means 'meadow' in Gaelic. The parish church, unused since the 1970s , is on the site of an early Christian monastery founded by St Adomnán, abbot of Iona (d. 704). several early christian cross-slabs dating to the 7th or 8th century have been discovered in and around the parish graveyard. A slab carved with stylised warriors and horsemen in the pictish style, uncovered during grave-digging in the 19th century, is displayed in the Museum of Scotland.
