Church Overview

Fine example of a rural parish kirk, with outstanding views across open countryside. The site has been a place of worship since the early 12th century when David I established the Chapel of ‘Pedynane’. The present church dates principally from the 18th century with an earlier belfry of 1692 and an incised cross slab re-used as a relieving lintel. Interesting walled burial ground. Acquired by Historic Churches Scotland in 2000 with the generous support of local people.


Occasional services, weddings and funerals by arrangement. For arranging services, please telephone Historic Churches Scotland on 0131 563 5135.
