Full Description

NH77NE 6 7775 7604.

The original LOGIE EASTER PARISH CHURCH was the church at NH 77NW 9. This church replaced NH 77NW 9 as LOGIE EASTER PARISH CHURCH when it was built around 1818, and was itself replaced as Parish Church by the church at NH 77NE 8 (former United Free Church). At present, NH 77NE 8 remains as the Parish Church.

Church demolished 1988

Church de-listed in 2010. <1>

This site should be viewed, along with three other ecclesiastical sites in the parish, as part of a continuous story, all four sites being at one time the Logie Easter Parish Church. This site is the third in the chronological list of the four sites, replacing the older Church, Marybank in 1820, which in turn had replaced Marybank Church, graveyard in 1767.

The burial ground is large, spreads over the hill site and contains gravestones predominantly from the late nineteenth century until the present day. The gravestones face many different directions.
The site of the demolished church lies at the head of the entrance steps which climb the hill and is marked by a commemorative stone at what was the east gable. This site now contains the most recent burials.

The burial ground was visited during the Highland Kirkyards project, run by Highland Buildings Preservation Trust. <2><3>
