Very peaceful and beautiful church building and exemplary kept cemetery. Amazing history in this area of Union Street. I was simply walking by and the sight of the seagulls on top of the memorisl stones was too good an opportunity to miss. They appeared to be keeping an eye on the graves....... perhaps warning off evil spirits?

I like this place because it's in city centre, but sadly I never been inside, but it is very historical place to visit.

What a gem! A really interesting upper storey never found in English churches. Downstairs lots of history of The Mither Kirk and fantastic modern sculptures and bespoke furniture by Tim Stead. Wonderful stained glass window by Shona Mcinnes. Lovely lady guided us then told us about the amazing installation at Migvie old Kirk....which is another story. You do not need to have a "churchy" background to appreciate this great treasure......but keep any visiting children quiet please.

Never been inside a such old church it was an amazing experience. The guides were very keen to tell you all about the place. We felt very welcome!
