There are no visible remains of the medieval parish church of Kilspindie. The fabric of the present church, which is of 19th-century date, incorporates in re-use a number of moulded stones, particularly in the S wall above the doorway at the W end and the window at the E end. Immediately W of this window there is a 17th-century sundial, and central to the wall there is a small collared capital. Some of these stones could, however, have come from Kilspindie castle (NO22NW 11) which formerly stood close by. In the burial-ground there are at least two 17th-century gravestones, and also a number of 18th-century date. The church of Kilspindie is on record in 1395.

Visited by RCAHMS (PC), June 1989.
