Falkland Parish Church Fife Scotland
Tour Falkland Parish Church Fife Scotland. Falkland is an ancient Royal Burgh, and there is evidence that an early church was situated some two miles to the west of the Burgh, at Kilgour, under the slopes of the East Lomond hill, a church there having been consecrated by David de Bernham, bishop of St Andrews in 1243. It is thought that a church was built on the present site after the Reformation and that the present building is the third to occupy the site. By 1845, it was considered that the then building reflected little credit on the Parish and it was replaced by the present building at a cost of £7,000, the gift of Onesiphorus Tyndall Bruce,who by marriage had become Keeper of the Palace of Falkland, and his wife Margaret. Welcome to the Parish Churches of Falkland and Freuchie.
