Tour Scotland Lecropt Kirk

Tour Scotland Lecropt Kirk. This Scottish Kirk is a handsome essay in Gothic revival style, built in 1827 to the designs of William Stirling, a local architect. It is a parish church of the Church of Scotland. Occupying a superb, elevated position overlooking the carse lands, Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument can be clearly seen from the church grounds and is located about a mile from Bridge of Allan and three miles from Dunblane.

The interior is a period piece of controlled dignity and beauty, containing in its loft, vaults and monuments the influence of an old landed family, the Stirlings of Keir, built in the age of patronage. This late Georgian church is an early example of its style in Scotland, in company with the other carse Kirks of Kippen and Kincardine in Menteith.

There has been a church at Lecropt prior to 1827, the old kirk was built in 1400 in what is now the Keir estate although nothing remains of the Kirk. It is known that there was a church at Lecropt prior to 1260.
