A ‘hatchment’ was a memorial to someone who had died and would feature the deceased’s coat of arms. This example, put up to commemorate the life of Clementina 11th Countess of Perth, once adorned a wall of Innerpeffray Chapel.
After the Reformation in 1560, the chapel served as a burial vault for the Drummonds, owners of the estate on which it stood.
Hatchments are very rare in Scotland today. Many of them were removed in the 1600s by the Church of Scotland.
