Aberlemno Parish Church

OS Grid Reference NO 52240 55550

There are no CWGC burials here but there are three family stones (that I could find)

A church here was dedicated by Bishop David de Bernham in 1242, but the site's history may be substantially longer.

There is documentary evidence to suggest that it was the site of a Pictish church of around 710AD but the current building largely dates to 1722, although a ridge of possibly earlier stonework survives at the base of the church walls.

It is famous for its Pictish stone, which stands near the west gable of the church.

This dates to the 8th century AD and commemorates the Battle of Nechtansmere.
