Tour Scotland Travel Video Parish Church And Cemetery Longforgan Perthshire

Tour Scotland Summer travel video of the Parish Church and graveyard cemetery in Longforgan on ancestry visit to Perthshire, Scotland. There has been a church on this site for at least 900 years. The tower is dated 1690 and has an eight sided steeple and unusual clock. The main building by John Paterson dates from 1795, the chancel by Alexander Hutcheson from 1900. The interior is notable for stained-glass windows by Stephen Adams, Margaret Chilton and Emma Butler-Cole Aitken, wood carving by Sir Robert Lorimer, a unique pipe organ and the remains of a medieval font. Several interesting tomb stones from 12th century are preserved in the church and graveyard. Blog post of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to travel and visit one day.
