St. Mary's Church (ND48SW 10), also known as South Kirk, is said to have been established in 11th C. The present building dates to 1789, although the interior was remodelled in the late 19th C. The graveyard (ND48SW 9) contains two tombstones, dated to 1554 and 1684 respectively. The gateway to the churchyard, built c.1830, is lintelled with a gabled top. A stone, into which two footprints have been carved (ND48SW 6), is kept inside the church. It is known as the Lady Kirk stone and is likely to be a 'Pictish' artefact, of 1st millennium AD date.
