Ecclesiastical building no longer in use as such. Former Free Church which was bequeathed to the members of St Cyrus Church and subsequently used as the Church Hall. At the time of the Disruption, the minister of St Cyrus Parish Church was Dr Keith Alexander. He preached for the last time at the Established Church on 28th May, and the following Sunday in a nearby barn where the congregation included "the Session Clerk, the Church
Treasurer, the entire Kirk Session and well over half of the congregation". The Free Church congregation were very unhappy that their children continued to be educated by the Established Church, but by 1846 Mrs Straton of Kirkside had provided funds for a new school for the 'children of the Free.'
