Church History

A modern cemetery lies to the east.

When the congregation for this church became too large Carriden Parish Church (see separate listing) immediately to the N was constructed in 1908-09 to provide extra seating. Peddie & Kinnear were commissioned to draw up plans in 1905-06 for the restoration of the old church, but these were not carried out. The old church was retained as a picturesque ruin.

Admiral Sir James Hope and Dr J Roebuck are buried in the graveyard. Hope owned Carriden House (see separate listing) and was responsible for many improvements to Carriden Estate including the creation of the model village of Muirhouses. Dr J Roebuck rented nearby Kinneil House (see separate listing) from the Hamiltons and was founder of the renowned Carron Iron Works.
