Summer Opening of the Church : : Last year the church was open for June, July and the first three weeks of August and attracted 3,642 visitors.
This year we could not open the church for two weeks due to the work on the roof of the church and for a further 5 days for funerals. In effect there were three weeks in which the church was closed.
Nevertheless in this shortened period the church was visited by 4,862 visitors !
Again the Minister and Kirk Session would like to thank all those who welcomed these visitors and especially Ishbel Beattie for organising the opening.
