St Cuthbert's Kirk
St Cuthbert's Kirk
The Kirk of St Cuthbert in Dalmeny is the best preserved Norman or Romanesque parish kirk in Scotland. It is thought to have been founded by one of the two Earls Gospatrick in the 12th century. Each of the parts, tower, nave, chancel and apse is narrower and has a lower floor than the preceding part. The original tower collapsed, possibly as early as the 15th century, and the present tower dates from the extensive restoration instigated by the Reverend Neil Sutherland between 1927 and 1934, during which many of the changes made to the building over the centuries were reversed to return it as far as possible to its original form.
