Markinch Church

The church was established as a preaching station in the sixth century by St. Drostan, a Culdee monk, (an early Celtic missionary).ย The Norman tower dates from around 1180. It is a category โ€˜Aโ€™ listed building and is one of five similar towers close to Markinch. The tower is 16 feet square and 80 feet tall.ย The current church building dates from 1786. A spire was added to the tower during the period 1807-1810 at which time the church was extended. A clock was installed in 1839 and then was renewed in 1929.

The church is open to the public and there are toilets on site, click for further details.
