Stirling Field and Archaeological Society – Outing to Logie Old Kirk & Kirkyard.
On Tuesday evening we will leave the Smith at 6.30pm to visit Logie Old Kirk & kirkyard. We will be guided on this outing by a member of the Logie Old Kirkyard Group, if you haven’t been for a while you will be amazed at what the group has achieved. (There will be a nominal donation to the Group of £2 per head.) There has been a place of worship at Logie since at least the 12th century and there are medieval records of church buildings on the site in 1183, 1380 and 1594. In 1684 what remained of the medieval work was replaced by a new church, built by Thomas Bauchop, which itself was replaced in1805 and now remains a picturesque ruin. The kirkyard is famous for its grave stones dating from the late 1600s and early 1700s, but it also contains two hog – back grave markers, probably dating to the 11th century. It is only a short walk from the car park and please bring appropriate outdoor clothing and footwear – it is only April so the weather can be unpredictable. Non-members are welcome to come along.
