St Drostan's Markinch
There are records of a church at Markinch dating from the time of MacBeth but the present church tower was built in the first half of the 12th century. Pieces of Norman decoration still survive. The interior now has a light, elegant Georgian character.
It is believed to be one of the oldest buildings in Scotland still in continuous use - but why such quality and why Markinch? The tour guide will try to provide answers.
