Statement of Interest

Ecclesiastical building no longer in use as such. At the time of writing the NSA, services were held outside, only "five or six times a year ..... A subscription, amounting to L130, has been lately raised in the parish for the purposes of building a church at Straloch, and it is hoped that ere long with aid from the General Assembly's Church Extension Committee, we may be able to effect so desirable an object". When originally listed the pulpit with soundingboard was in place, this with other furnishings is thought to have been passed to Kirkmichael Church.
