Church with tower built 1886 by J MacKissack (of MacKissack and Rowan) who was a member of the congregation; on site of and retaining part of Charles Wilson's church of 1839. Combines Romanesque and Scots Gothic elements. Snecked and stugged ashlar, polished dressings, slate roofs. Lofty gabled front to street with massive stepped buttresses, sculptured doorway, square tower to left also with stepped buttresses, walls almost blank to belfry stage, open crown spire springing from domed finials and surmounted by little lantern. Church HALL to rear (E) incorporates work by Wilson.
Neglected, and no longer in Ecclesiastical use. Competition actually won by J Ritchie, but MacKissack secured the commission.
