[Kincardine O'Neil Old Church]

Kincardine O'Neil is an attractive but tiny roadside village on the road through Deeside; the overwhelmingly grey architecture conjures up the scene of a black and white photograph except for the odd burst of colour from flower pots and street signs. It'd be easy to drive through with barely a thought, but the ruined kirk on the south side of the road is worth a stop. Once twice as long and two storeys high, this used to be the local parish church and dates to the 14th century. A hospital used to adjoin the east end gable, with windows allowing sick patients to listen in on services. A recessed Gothic doorway, now blocked up, can be found in the north wall.
