Cullen Old Kirk

Cullen Old Kirk is dates mainly to the 11th century, but the roots of the building go back at least two centuries earlier. The church is known for its fine stone carvings. Of particular interest is the beautifully carved tomb of Alexander Ogilvie of that Ilk (d. 1554).

We can assume that all of Alexander's body was buried here, but the same cannot be said for Queen Elizabeth de Burgh. When Elizabeth died in in 1327 only her internal organs were buried here.

Further features include a Laird's gallery of 1602, built for the Seafield family, and a lovely sacrament house set in the north wall. The church is generally open on selected days during the summer months.
