The owner of an adjacent property kindly let me use her external house steps to take this late afternoon winter shot just before the sun dipped below the hills.
It was built in 1640 after the kirk moved from St Mary's of the Lowes, with major works in 1771-2 to heighten the walls and insert lofts. Further works were carried out in 1826 and 1876, but the character of the building was greatly modified in 1906 by the addition of a polygonal apse in the centre of the south wall. The churchyard contains a mixture of 17th, 18th and 19th century table tombs, headstones and obelisks, and there is a mounting block at the entrance gates.
