Opinions of St. Mary's Kirk at (Aberdeenshire)


This a beautiful medieval church nestled in a patch of woodland in the quiet countryside, where on a sunny day you're surrounded by birdsong and the faint sound of the river below. The church was in use until the 19th Century when it was replaced by a new church to the east - if coming from the main road (from Rhynie) you will pass the new church, also a roofless ruin, on your way to the medieval church...don't make the easy mistake of confusing the new church for the old one!!! You'll know you're at the right place if you see the stunning Norman arched doorway, with rows of dogtooth /chevron patterning. There are lots of interesting features dotted around the church, look out for some beautiful carved stonework. There are a couple of Historic Scotland interpretation boards with a little info on the site. It's a lovely contemplative place. Not wheelchair accessible. There is parking for 1-2 cars just before and just after the church, at roadside so beware of traffic. Lots of interesting gravestones too. Free to visit.

Since this was part of historic Scotland we was hopping to see something interesting. After 3 hours from edimburgh we ourselves in the middle of nowhere where with looking to small and old church. The place is nice but doesn't deserve the trip. Expecially because there are much better places in Scotland


This church is in a beautiful very quiet graveyard, I have been coming here since the 70s, it's still a quiet and very well kept place.
