This was my second attempt in recent weeks to have a look inside this church. On both occasions that I've visited the front gate has been locked. I walked round the church and spotted someone entering from the rear door. I asked politely if I could have a quick look around inside and my request was granted. Now the outside... More

The building is historic and aesthetically interesting. The congregation is vibrant and active in the community. The gardens and flowers are beautiful.

This church is not as old as it appears to be. Old drawings of St Andrews show what looks like the same church on the site from the early 15th century. However, the 15th century church was demolished in around 1800 and replaced with a larger and rather different style of church. This lasted for about 100 years before it... More

Walking tour from St Andrew Cathedral Ruin to this beautiful site. On a summer day the garden was just as beautiful as the church. This is worth a look see. Pop in for a bit to eat at the Dolls House in the alley just behind!!

Beautiful church especially when seen from the inside, and during an actual service. Well worth spending time to look this one over.

I was doing my solo walking tour of St. Andrews when I saw this kirk and decided to see if it was open (early afternoon on a Tuesday). I found an open door and was able to go in and look around a bit before finding out that the church was in fact, closed to visitors and the door had... More

This church is located in the middle of the Old Town of St Andrews and is a beautiful building . It is worth a stop when you walk around the city and a visit inside will reward you with the sights of beautiful glasses and there was even an exposition of paintings when we went there !

I did not get into the church but just photoed its outlook and description. Luckily, it is open for prayers! And it just five min walk from university.

I had the pleasure of singing in Holy T again recently and I was reminded of just how beautiful and tranquil it really is. The architecture is magnificent and there are often paintings from local church-goers on display, in addition to beautiful floral centrepieces; it would be a perfect venue to photograph. The staff are always friendly, helpful and forthcoming... More
