Church Overview

St Bean (d.720) was grandson of the King of Leinster, Ireland, and preached among the Picts in this area. There has been a church on this site since those times. The church is a 13th-century building renovated in 1927 by Jeffrey Waddell of Glasgow with much Celtic ornament. It retains many of the original features including a 'lepers' squint'. The Pictish Cross under the north wall is evidence of over 1,000 years of Christian worship in the area.
