A simple harled church of 1668 was built in the stormy times of the covenanters; there is a date of 1668 on the west gable. The church was rebuilt in 1689 and the bell-cote added in 1801. The church was renovated and ‘Gothicised’ in 1897 by architect G T Ewing who removed the gallery, added the porch and vestry and gave the building its round window in the west gable and the lancet windows in the side walls. The interior is mostly of the 1897 renovation, upgraded in the 1970s. Stained-glass windows by A Ballantine & Gardiner, 1897, and by Oscar Paterson, 1919.
