The parish includes the East Cult standing stones.[3]

A 120m wide cairn, known as Cairnmore, was removed to facilitate farming in the 19th century but Roman remains still exist at Inchtuthill and at Cleaven Dyke where the remains of a small fort are still evidenced.[4]


The village has a primary school - Glendelvine Primary School[5] built in 1876.
