NT0776 : Auldcathie Kirk

taken 4 years ago, near to Winchburgh, West Lothian, Great Britain

Auldcathie Kirk
Auldcathie Kirk
There is a NT0876 : Signpost to Auldcathie Kirk by the canal bridge pointing to 'permissive path to Auldcathie Kirk'. However it would be easy to miss the kirk altogether as the path passes through a woodland, you can't easily see the kirk from the path, and there is not follow-up sign to tell you when to turn left to the kirk. Even if there were such a sign, the path between the edge of the wood and the kirk has evidently been ploughed up and planted with winter cereals. Under the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003 a walker is entitled to cross the field as long as the cereal is still just sprouting, but once it gets a bit taller the entitlement ceases because it becomes impossible to walk through the crop without damaging it. The ruins are those of a pre-reformation kirk, with some parts dating back to the 14th century. See also NT0776 : Auldcathie Kirk. Details at LinkExternal link
