Parish Church, Alexander Robertson, 1825, built by Peter Dawson, 1829-34

A four-bay rectangular block, the west elevation (opposite pulpit) left deliberately blank to allow conversion to a T-plan if more room required, and of sufficient height to be fitted with galleries 'to accommodate 200 more if necessary'. Burial enclosures to north and north east.
