Restalrig Parish Church and St. Triduana's Chapel
Restalrig Parish Church and St. Triduana's Chapel
The building to the left is Restalrig Parish Church, or St. Margaret's, and is largely an 1836 restoration of a re-build dating back to 1487. Worship has been recorded at Restalrig since the 12th century, and in the 15th century James III altered its status to a collegiate establishment known as the Deanery of Restalrig. Following the Reformation in 1560, the church was attacked and destroyed by the Protestant reformers.

The building to the right is called St. Triduana's Chapel - it has also been known as St. Triduana's Aisle or St. Triduana's Well. Named after a Pictish saint, this hexagonal building dates back to the late 15th century. Now only the lower half of the building survives today, with the current roof being added in 1906 by Thomas Ross.
