No trace exists of St Peter's Church. According to Dunnet, the first mention of a Catholic Church of 'St Peter of Strathowen' is in the 12th century (H Dunnet 1919).

The present church was built c. 1790.

The four symbol stones discovered in the church-yard, which is still in use, now stand against the S wall of the church.

Surveyed at 1:2500.
