Old Shandon Free Church
For a closer look, see William Craig's earlier photograph: NS2586 : Gare Loch, the Kirk Gate. As suggested there, it is no longer a church; it was converted into four individual dwellings in 1986, losing a steeple in the process [see "North Clyde Estuary: An Illustrated Architectural Guide" (1991) by Frank A Walker and Fiona J Sinclair].

The church (Free Church of Scotland), at the foot of NS2586 : Kirk Brae, Shandon, was built in 1844, with additions in 1883. Near the right-hand edge of the photo, an original entrance can be seen, though it is now blocked.

Shandon War Memorial used to be located in front of the church, but it has been relocated: NS2685 : Shandon War Memorial.
