church dates from 1834 on a commanding hilltop position. In 1856 it
became the parish church of the new quoad sacra parish, formed out of
this end of the Banchory-Devenick parish.
The grounds are in very good condition
and all stones are easily seen. There are two extensions to the original
graveyard, which are easily distinguished. A good view of the town of
Portlethen, the extensive industrial area and railway can be seen from
this high vantage point. A pity that the site is now dominated by
the adjacent senior citizen home - but that's progress.
The churchyard is easily accessible with a large car park just
outside the grounds.
Worth a visit,
but remember its usually very cold up there, even in summer!
