Location: Pettinain Road, Pettinain.

From South Lanarkshire's website:

"The cemetery extension is located within the churchyard and the site gives fantastic views over the River Clyde and Medwin Water. The Church sits prominently on a hilltop reputed to have been a focus of Christian worship for more than 900 years and is presently in the care of the Scottish Redundant Churches Trust. There is great contrast between modern and old headstones and in the way they are laid out. The cemetery has new lairs available and can continue to provide for future generations by the re-opening of lairs. The cemetery can also accommodate interments of cremated remains within existing family lairs."

Contains 2 CWGC graves.
