Designed by James Gillespie Graham, this fine building probably replaced the medieval church built on the site in 1249.

In perpendicular Georgian Gothic, there have been a number of alternation, but the interior retains many of its original features. A plaque by Sir Robert Lorimer and original wooden cross commemorate Robert Bruce, Master of Burleigh, who was killed on 26th August 1941 in one of the first early campaigns of the WW1

The stained glass is impressive and all of mid 20th century date. The coronation window, the only one in the county, is in the east wall of the gallery. Her majesty the Queen visited on 9th July 1997 to see the window.

The kirkyard has some late 17th & 18th Century trade gravestones and the Bruce family memorials.

Homemade soup and sandwiches available from noon – 2pm
