This is a really interesting former church. The best part is probably the old graveyard - extremely atmospheric with crumbling stone monuments, many of them dating from 1700s. Inside it is quiet and peaceful with some information about the church and the area. On a...More

Wow what an interesting old church. Upstairs there were pews made from Jacobite painted wood. Very special In the grave yard we were shown an old grave stone with skull and cross bones. Had to be early 1600s. Worth a wander.

The church doesn't look anything from the outside, so we probably wouldn't have gone in, but as they were having a flower and art exhibition we ventured inside. The inside is beautiful and worth a look. The exhibition was an added bonus.
