A medieval church existed in Cardross since 1226 and in 1329 the body of Robert the Bruce was brought there, before its burial in Dunfermline Abbey. A new church was built in 1644 and replaced in 1827 by the church which destroyed by a bomb in May 1941. After the war the present building opened in 1872 as a Free Church was adapted and became Cardross Parish Church.
Come and enjoy our stained and etched glass windows – Hannah Frew Paterson’s beautiful Cardross Embroidered Panels and Sarah Sumsion Silk Hangings.
