Tour Scotland Video Parish Church And Graveyard Kilmany North East Fife

Tour Scotland video of the Parish Church and graveyard on ancestry visit to Kilmany, Fife, Scotland. The old parish church of Kilmany, which was rebuilt in 1768, is thought to have been dedicated to St Adrian and formerly belonged to St Salvator's College St Andrews. In 1934, following the 1929 union of the Church of Scotland and the United Free Church, Kilmany was joined with the former United Free church congregation of Rathillet. After the union the charge continued under the name of Kilmany and both churches remained in use for public worship. Kilmany was later linked in 1956 with Flisk, however this arrangement was terminated in 1971 in favour of union between Flisk, Kilmany and also Creich, under the name of Creich, Flisk and Kilmany. A further link was established between the united parish and Monimail in 1983. The kirk session sat within the Presbytery of Cupar until the restructuring of the presbyteries in 1976, when it became part of the Presbytery of St Andrews. The church is a simple rectangle, with a west porch and bellcote. It is surrounded by a graveyard with stones the earliest of which date from the late eighteenth century, and its use continued into the late twentieth century.
