Parish Church at East Saltoun in East Lothian
This present church was built in 1805 in the Gothic style. It is the third church to stand on this spot. Its spire is reputed to be 99 feet tall to avoid paying a tax on spires over 100 feet ! It was funded by John Fletcher Campbell in memory of his ancestors, the Fletchers of Saltoun. Below the church are the burial Vaults of the Fletchers of Saltoun Hall. Interred there is the body of Andrew Fletcher 1655-1716, politician and writer.
