The church (St
Bridget) was established at this location at the end of the 13th century.
The present construction was built in 1782 though extensively rebuilt with
additions in 1862. It is very historic and is associated with many
notable worthies including Earl Marischal, founder of Marischal College,
onetime university of Aberdeen. One of the most famous gravestones
commemorates the Covenanters who perished in Dunnottar Castle in 1685.
The graveyard today is divided into a modern extensive burial ground at
the back of the site with the older graveyard to the front and one side of
Access is easy with ample parking just outside the
churchyard. The grounds are kept in excellent condition, with most
stones easily accessible. A lovely site to visit in the shelter of the
Dunnottar woods. Highly recommended.
