Kinfauns Old Parish Church
The old parish church at Kinfauns is medieval, dating from the 12th century when it was a chapel for Scone Abbey Stabilisation. It was re-built post-Reformation and abandoned in the early 19th century.

The project will now focus on working with the community of Kinfauns and other interested people to preserve the old parish church and Charteris Gray Aisle for future generations. This will include masonry conservation, wall consolidation, roof repairs, re-pointing and graveyard enhancement work.
