This is a rare opportunity to see the unique medieval church in Cardross.� Set on the hillside, overlooking the Clyde, the church recently celebrated its 550th anniversary, and is still in regular use at the heart of its parish community.

All visitors will be welcome to this beautiful building, restored in 1955.� It has been a place of worship since the 6th century and as well as its important spiritual significance, there are many notable historical and archaeological features.� These include the remnant of a 6th century standing stone, a medieval Sacrament House and Easter Sepulchre, and the original 15th century Baptismal font, now restored to use.

The church is half a mile from the main A814. The church is on the right, with car parking on the left. There are no toilet facilities. Entry to the building is by small steps and there are handrails, but no level access.
