Church Overview

The main part of the church dates from 1758. The piscina of the original church is still visible on the east wall. Chantry chapel of late 15th century containing various memorial plaques to members of the Hunter Blair family. In 1901 the church was renovated by John Kinross and the bell-tower was added to the design of John Murdoch. Beautiful carvings on the ceiling and pulpit. Striking ‘Millennium Banner’ mounted on a pedestal made from a former pew. Tapestry cushions, 1993, depict themes from the life and work of the community, and artwork by the local Sewing Guild commemorate 1997 as ‘The Year of Faith’; 1998 as ‘The Year of Hope’; and 1999 as ‘The Year of Love’. The stone font is the gift of the Fergusson family. Splendid stained glass. Covenanter’s memorial in graveyard, open every day.
