You can really feel the atmosphere of the kirk in here and the hierarchy of parishioners in the numbered stalls. Worth a visit and free.

This is a splendid place to visit. The fabric of the church is excellent. It is worth going up to each of the 3 lofts: you will find a helpful pamphlet in each loft. This really deserves visitors.

An informative stop that gives insight into what was like there centuries ago. I enjoyed reading the history and perusing the gravestones.
