Description

Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park Planning Authority

A good example of the work of renowned architect Thomas Ross, Crianlarich Parish Church was built in 1901. This tiny harled, Gothic, pitched roof church with red sandstone ashlar dressings, buttressing, cill and eaves course and angle margins is prominently sited in Crianlarich. It remains largely as it was built and its acute sense of proportion coupled with excellent detailing lift it above the norm.

The West gable has a Geometric window with quatrefoil detailing flanked by buttresses and a small stone cross at the apex. The South elevation is single bay with the lower single bay vestry with its gableheaded window adjoining at right angles. In the re-entrant angle is the angled entrance which has a 2-leaf timber door and a timber pitched roof bracketed entrance canopy with finial detail. The East elevation is blank. On the North elevation 2 trefoil-headed windows flank a buttress. There are cast-iron rainwater goods.

INTERIOR

Aisleless, the single bay nave has an open timber roof with a kingpost truss. The interior is whitewashed with a boarded timber dado and there is simple coloured glass to the square leaded panes of the windows. There are boarded timber pews. There is an en suite oak font and communion table with trefoil detailing and a timber pulpit.

MATERIALS

Slate roof.

GATEPIERS AND BOUNDARY WALLS

To the North there are a pair of rubble gatepiers with rubble walling. A section of rubble wall runs from North to South.
