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.
