The Church of the Holy Family is a Catholic church located in Dunblane, Scotland.


From 1883 the local Catholic community met in a coach house in the grounds. The priest would travel from the Catholic church at Doune for mass each Sunday. The church was planned in the early 1930s and the building completed and officially opened on 27 December 1934. It was designed by the Scottish architect Reginald Fairlie. It is Romanesque in style with an Arts and Craft style roof.
