Church Overview

Craigiebuckler Parish Church (1883) was desiged by Alexander Marshall MacKenzie in Early English Gothic style. With exterior walls entirely of dressed granite, the building has a nave with a central aisle, a raised chancel with a semi-octagonal apse and a bellcote.

Original interior features include the carved oak pulpit, barrel vaulted ceilings with painted texts, and pitch pine pews. Light oak wall panelling, choir stalls, elders’ seats and the communion table were added during internal alterations in the 1950s. The pipe organ is by Conacher.

Craigiebuckler’s stained glass comprises a suite of twelve windows (1961-1971) by William Wilson, three windows (1885) by Sir Edward Burne-Jones/Morris & Co and two door panels (1995) by Josepha van Furstenberg.
