Cardross Old Parish Church
The first church on this site was erected in 1643-44; it replaced St Serf's Church LinkExternal link as parish church of Cardross. It, in turn, was replaced by Cardross Old Parish Church (1826-27; architect James Dempster); see LinkExternal link (at Canmore) for details. It was damaged by WWII bombing (1941), and is no longer in ecclesiastical use. The present-day parish church is the nearby former Free Church (NS34467754) on Station Road.
