Glenbervie parish church

Located at NO766807. Built in 1826, a "barnlike building on a cheerless site". No monuments other than the war memorials.

Photograph of Glenbervie Kirk

Above: Glenbervie Kirk

The ruined former kirk, which was dedicated to St Michael the Archangel, is now the Glenbervie Aisle, the burial vault of the lairds of Glenbervie. It is located at National Grid ref. NO767804. There are also memorials to Burness ancestors of Robert Burns in the kirkyard.

Monument in Glenbervie Aisle

Second view of monument in Glenbervie Aisle

Above: views of the monument within the Glenbervie Aisle. The monument is an assemblage of parts, in imitation of an altar and reredos. It commemorates William Douglas, 3rd of Glenbervie, who succeeded as 9th earl of Angus and died on 1 Jul 1591, and his wife Dame Geillis Graham. For full details, see Davidson, pp. 26-8, and Andrew Jervise, "Epitaphs & Inscriptions", vol. 2, pp. 344-5. The photographs seem to show four piles on the 3rd quarter of the arms on the left-hand panel of the chest, representing the lordship of Jedburgh Forest, rather than three as stated by Davidson. Also, the letters flanking the two shields on the right-hand panel of the chest, given as VD and DG by Davidson, seem rather to be V DG G, cleverly combining VDG (William Douglas of Glenbervie) and DGG (Dame Geillis Graham).

Drumlithie episcopal church
Built 1863. No longer in use.

There are photographs of the church and some monuments in the churchyard at Drumlithie Churchyard. The coat of arms on that page appears to be that of Alexander Penrose Forbes, as Bishop of Brechin. See also Drumlithie Episcopal Church.
