Kiltearn Old Parish Churchyard.


This evening, I am focusing on the, now roofless, Old Parish church at Kiltearn near Evanton, about seventeen miles north of Inverness on the banks of the  Cromarty Firth.

This structure dates from 1791 and incorporates parts of an earlier, medieval church. The site possibly dates from early Christian times.

The Church was dedicated to St. Ternan who was active in the 5th century.

The size of the church reflects patronage by the local Munro family who still have land holdings, including Foulis Castle, in the locality. The two video clips below record Munro memorial stones with histories dating back to 1588 and even 1126.

The associated burial ground is still in use. There are burials of Commonwealth and Polish war dead from WW2.

A quiet and reflective site.
