This is a really interesting former church. The best part is probably the old graveyard - extremely atmospheric with crumbling stone monuments, many of them dating from 1700s. Inside it is quiet and peaceful with some information about the church and the area. On a...More
Wow what an interesting old church. Upstairs there were pews made from Jacobite painted wood. Very special

Inside it is...More
