Monymusk Parish Kirk
View from the south-west. The church dates from the 12th Century but has been heavily rebuilt several times over the last 800 years. The unusual arrangement of windows on the south side of the nave date from 1822 and reflect reformed worship: two large windows either side of the pulpit (against the south wall at the time) and smaller windows for the pews (lower) and galleries (upper). Traces of the 17th Century minister's door between the large windows are just visible. The interior was reconfigured in ca. 1930 to a west-east nave/chancel orientation.
