Muthill is a village in Perth and Kinross, Perthshire, Scotland. It lies on the former railway line connecting Perth and Crieff, 3 miles south of Crieff.

The village is ancient and was once an important religious centre and the site of a Celí Dé monastery. The church here also served for a time as a seat of the Bishops of Strathearn (later Dunblane), before the building of the cathedral at Dunblane in the 13th century.

The village was largely destroyed in the 1715 – 1716 Jacobite rising, being rebuilt in the 1740s as it lay on the route of General Wade's military road through Strathearn.

There are over a hundred listed buildings in the village. The kirkyard at the centre of the small town contains the ruins of an important 15th century parish church, which incorporates an 11th century bell-tower (originally free-standing, and comparable to, though on a smaller scale than, that incorporated into Dunblane Cathedral), built on the orders of Michael Ochiltree, Bishop of Dunblane (in the care of Historic Scotland; no entrance charge). This is almost the only visible reminder of the ancient village. An early Christian cross-slab (perhaps 10th-11th century) and a damaged 13th century double effigy of an Earl and Countess of Strathearn (formerly within the choir of the church) are preserved within the tower.
