of Hippo. 1871-73. Architect : Sir Robert Rowand Anderson. A beautiful
interior with some great stained glass. Built in 1873 to the designs of
architect Sir Robert Rowand Anderson in the Gothic Revival Style. The interior
is said to be among Anderson's finest. Stained glass at baptismal font is by
Stephen Adam with others to designs by Carl Alnquist. The organ was designed
and built for the church by Smith and Brock. Some woodcarvings such as the
angels on the pews are worth a look. Total restoration of building in 2003. A
parsonage and hall by A. C. Denny are now demolished, but a modern timber clad
building was added. Scotland's great Art Nouveau architect Charles Rennie
Mackintosh married Margaret Macdonald here in 1900. Main public parking off
