Old Photograph Parish Church Drumlithie Scotland

Old photograph of the Parish Church in Drumlithie located seven miles South of Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Drumlithie is noted for its appearance in the classic Lewis Grassic Gibbon novel, Sunset Song, while neighbouring Glenbervie is the final resting place of the great grandparents of famous Scottish poet Robert Burns. Drumlithie is also twinned with Couture D'Argenson in France. Close to Drumlithie is the land of Mondynes, and here again springs the history of Scottish kings and their battles. It was here that King Duncan the Second is thought to have been slain, and the spot where he fell, in a field at Mill of Mondynes, is marked by a large standing stone which, legend has it, must be kept whitewashed at all times.
