The old parish church of Flisk, which stood nearly in the centre of the graveyard, was taken down in 1790 and replaced by the present church, a few yards to the NE (at NO 3139 2249). It is mentioned in 1176, and was re-dedicated in 1242, the dedication being to St Adrian, also known as St Magridin.

Name Book 1854; H Scott 1950

At the published site there is only a slight platform. The dedication could not be confirmed.
