Latest news and events for Abernethy Old Kirk

You are invited to step into the Old Kirk at Nethy Bridge and step back in time.

The Abernethy Old Kirk Association in conjunction with the Highland Folk Museum is holding a 'Fashion and Furniture Exhibition' from Saturday 4th of August to Sunday 19th of August. Authentic crinoline dresses, tartan outfits and a range of vernacular furniture will help visualise how our ancestors lived.

The Old Kirk's Event Organiser Olwen Billington said "We are delighted to join forces with the Highland Folk Museum to provide an exhibition of such calibre. It certainly brings our 'Time-line' to life. Our genealogy boffin, Mark Whitton, has prepared a wealth of information including family trees with birth, marriage and death details, military records and old parish records which will be on view in our genealogy corner. Also available is information provided by our 'Archaeologist in Residence' Stuart Farrell B.A., A.I.F.A., F.S.A. Scot. We are providing 'hands on' activities for the children and tea/coffee/juice and home baking will be available, so I urge everyone to come along for what promises to be an interesting, informative and imaginative experience."

The exhibition will be open each day from 11am to 5pm (closed Tuesdays and Thursdays) with free entry and free parking.

The Stonemasons are at work on the Old Kirk, you may have noticed.  Yesterday as they were removing the harling from the east gable a 1760s doorway was revealed, "filled in" in by Architect, Alexander Marshal Mackenzie in the 1890s.  This we believe was the Craigmore Door.  If you would like to see this little piece of local history then please do so as soon as possible as the gable is scheduled to be re-harled very soon.
We are contacting our Archaeologist in Residence, Stuart Farrell and have been in touch with our Conservation Officer.  We have taken photographs and information will be available soon
