Tour Spittal of Glenshee Church Scotland

Spittal of Glenshee Church, Scotland. Glenshee Church has stood at the head of Glenshee in the shadow of Gulabin for over a century. "The name Glenshee comes from the Gaelic word shith which signifies fairies and also means peace. The building as it stands today replaced an old and unseemly edifice. It is said that the new Church was originally to have been built at Runavey but the fairies did not approve of this and when the masons started building they came by night and pulled down what had been built up and this was continued night after night until the committee realised the futility of opposing the wishes of the "little folks" and the church was built on the spot of the previous house of worship." From Tales of a Highland Parish by Rev. T.A. Miller,M.A.
