English: Abernethy is a village in Perth and Kinross, Scotland, situated eight miles south-east of Perth. It has one of Scotland's two surviving Irish-style round towers (the other is at Brechin, Angus; both are in the care of Historic Scotland). The key for the round tower can be obtained from a nearby café, and it is possible to climb to the top, using a modern metal spiral staircase (the Tower originally had several wooden floors linked by ladders). It was once the 'capital' (or at least a major religious and political centre) of the Pictish kingdom. The tower was evidently built in two stages (shown by a change in the masonry), and probably dates to the 11th-early 12th centuries. The parish church is dedicated to St Bridget of Kildare (fl. 451-525), and the church is said to have been founded by Dairlugdach, second abbess of Kildare, one of early Christian Ireland's major monasteries, on land given by Nechtan, king of the Picts.

Staden var förr säte för pikternas konungar, från vilkas tid ett 24 meter högt, runt torn ännu kvarstår. Väster om Abernethy, i byn Forteviot, besegrade år 842 Kenneth I, skoternas konung och pikterna och blev därigenom konungariket Skottlands grundläggare.
