West Dunbartonshire

How to get there : High Street at junction with Church and Castle Streets.

A plain pedimented Georgian building designed by John Brash of Glasgow, architect, in 1811. But surprises await you. It has magnificent stained glass windows which you need to appreciate from the inside. There are several from notable artists. Look out for that by William Morris. And then enjoy the glorious light through that of the Millenium Window created by renowned glass artist John Clark.


At the rear are remnants of the graveyard. Of interest are the mausolea. That for the Napier family is from 1846, a simple rectangular-plan Gothic enclosure.
