Statement of Interest

The feu charter records that the church had been constructed on land belonging to the Edinchip Estate by 1888, when it was feued in favour of the Bishop of Dunkeld. Lady Helen Laura MacGregor of MacGregor, David Carnegie of Stronvar, and Col John Stewart of Ardvorlich were the principal benefactors. The church is distinguished by its unusual top-heavy belfry.
