St Rules pre-1902
By Mhairi Pyott
There has been a place of Christian worship on the site of St Rules Church for over 1400 years and most probably some form of worship before then.
The town developed around the church, which at one time was identified as `Kirkton of Monifieth`.

Over many years I have read or been told of incidents and happenings associated with people from the Monifieth area.
You may judge for yourself as to the accuracy of such tales and events written in this recorded version.
Certainly some articles are factually correct, others, well you are left to make your own decision.
Hopefully you will be entertained by reading Monifieth Tales, Fact or Fiction

Over the centuries the name of this ancient settlement has changed many times, as has the various conclusions as to the possible reasons for the title. The registered coat of arms carries the feature of a stag’s head and a hill, signifying the combination of two Gaelic words, Monadh Feidh. However, I am more in favour of another two Gaelic words, Monaich fother, meaning Monks land, or Holy Place. Undoubtedly over the passage of time Monifieth has indeed been regarded as a historical holy place.
