Maryton Church is now a private residence. The churchyard is at the side and behind the house. The entrance for the churchyard is through the main gate to the house, then veering to the right.
There are two War Memorials outside the gate, a civic one and a school one.





You can just see Montrose Basin through the trees in the bottom photograph.
