  Glendermott Presbyterian Church  Old  New  Church Road

 

"This church is about 1 1/2 miles from the cemetery (the cemetery is also known as Apprentice Boy's Cemetery). The original Glendermott church on the cemetery site is no longer there. Church Road is just off Church Brae and you can take a bus from the city center to get to that intersection. It takes about 15 - 20 min, depending on where you pick up the bus. Then you have to walk down Church Road about 1 1/2 miles to the cemetery, which is on the left hand side of the country road in a copse of large bushes surrounded by hillside farms. Beautiful area.  It's well-hidden. Some of the headstones are so worn that the names/dates are no longer legible."  D. Davis, May 2007
