Stobo Kirk

Stobo Kirk ExteriorStobo Kirk InteriorAs parts of the present Stobo Kirk date from the 12th century, it is one of the oldest churches in Scotland still in regular use.  It is thought that an earlier
building on the site  may  have  been  started  by  St Kentigern  in  the 6th  century.     Over £100,000 has been spent in the last  15 years on maintenance and improvements.

Drumelzier KirkDrumelzier Kirk dates from the early 16th century  but  again  there  was  an  earlier building on the site.   There has been no major expenditure in the last 15 years and none is foreseen.   Regular worship is not conducted in Drumelzier but occasional services are held including a candlelit service at Christmas.
