Overview

5 September 2021 (10:00 - 16:00) Fife ~ East A religious site since 1607, the
Auld Kirk’s present structure dates from 1794. It is one of the oldest
buildings in Tayport and an important local landmark, in particular its
distinctive leaning clock tower. The porch area at the south west side of the
tower is above the vault, which is the last resting place of the various
Lairds of Scotscraig. A small stair to the left gives access to the Laird’s
Loft, a private room used by the Laird and his family during church services.
Above the Laird’s Loft are three stages of ladders to access the clock room
and bell (unavailable to visitors). By 1898 drawings show proposals for the
massive alteration to create a bay to house the organ and two large stained
glass windows which flank it. The impressive John Miller organ was built and
installed in 1899. The console was located centrally but later moved to the
side to create more space in the formal worship area. The Auld Kirk is
developing as an Arts and Heritage Centre, retaining the building’s historic
features. The surrounding graveyard has many interesting slabs reflecting
Tayport’s history, maritime connections and the family grave of renowned local
artist Cynicus (Martin Anderson). FOR ALL OUR LATEST NEWS, EVENTS AND
