St Peter's Kirk, Peterculter. Stones to remember workmen killed by lightning.
The present St Peter's church at Peterculter dates from 1779. On July 10th, 1779 two workmen were killed by lightning on the nearby farm Alton (Oldtown) as they collected stone for the building. Two stones placed to mark the fatal spot were removed during the construction of the Peterculter Golf Course and are now placed against the wall of St Peter's Kirk (now St Peter's Heritage Centre).
