Church Overview

There has been a church on the site since the 6th century. The present church was built in 1805 to the design of Robert Nisbet; the steeple by William Sibbald. The interior was reorientated and remodelled in 1893 by J MacIntyre Henry and again in 2002 by Simpson & Brown. Known as the 'Visible Kirk' because of its prominent position, it stands on the site of a Roman praetorium and replaces a medieval church. Fine Adam-style ceiling and some excellent stained glass. Magnificent pipe organ by Lewis 1892, originally built with early form of electric action. Graveyard with many interesting old stones.
