Mid 19th century. Small rectangular-plan, gothic-detailed former church with 3-bay nave and pinnacled buttresses on steeply falling ground. Squared and snecked rubble with ashlar dressings. Base course. Pointed-arch openings. 3-stage diagonal buttresses with raked coping. Hoodmoulds with label-stops. Chamfered reveals.

SW (PRINCIPAL) ELEVATION: gabled elevation with steps up to deeply-moulded doorway and 2-leaf timber door, single lancets in flanking bays and buttress to outer angles, trefoil opening in gablehead.

SE (DUCHLAGE ROAD) ELEVATION: deep-set altered door to centre with traceried windows to flanking bays; small traditional rooflight to outer left and modern ventilator to left of centre.

NW ELEVATION: 3 regularly-disposed traceried windows.

NE ELEVATION: 2 large traceried windows.

Mottled, square-pane glazing in timber sash and case and fixed windows; timber tracery with remains of leaded glass retained to SE and NW; modern glazing to SW. Grey slates. Ashlar-coped skews.

BOUNDARY WALLS AND RAILINGS: low saddleback-coped boundary walls with inset cast-iron railings and semicircular-coped boundaries.

Statement of Interest

Ecclesiastical building no longer in use as such. Now used as dining centre for Crieff Primary School. Korner notes that together with the nearby 'Parochial and Grammar School, and Pilkington's 'Inchglas' (Broich Terrace), this "lately erected building (is) of a better style of architecture than is general in the town". The altered stonework at the apex of the principal gable suggests there was formerly a finial here.
