Portpatrick - Old Church

Monuments & Ruins

Portpatrick, Dumfries & Galloway, DG9

    Whilst exploring the beautiful village of Portpatrick, stop by the Old Church which is thought to be medieval.

    St Andrew's Kirk was built in the 16th century; however, the circular tower was created earlier and is thought to be medieval.

    The circular shape of the church is unusual and it has been suggested that it once served as a lighthouse.

    The Old Church is located in picturesque Portpatrick, which owes its origins to trade with Ireland. Discover some wonderful monuments in the graveyard to local sailors, sea captains and customs officers. There are also memorials to local wrecks including one recording the loss of the Orion, which sank close to the harbour in 1850 with the loss of 60 lives.
