Door open days

Stirling

Old Kilmdock Kirkyard, situated on the River Teith between Doune and Callender, is a complex site which has seen multiple uses over the past millennia. At it's centre are the remains of a medieval church and surrounding this is a graveyard which was in regular use from the sixteenth century (if not earlier) until the 1970's. Highlights include richly carved thrauchstanes and table stones from the 16th and 17th centuries as well as fine examples of Victorian wrought iron grave fencing. To the southeast of the main sites lie the ruins of the former manse and between the built areas and the river are traces of a historic road which followed it's course.
