IN THE STEPS OF THE COVENANTERS Sunday 6 August 2017
For over 100 years a church service has been held at Kirk o’Muir cemetery commemorating this period in Scottish history around the 1770s. This year’s service is on Sunday 6th August at 12 noon conducted by the Reverend Gary McIntyre of St Ninians Parish Church. This cemetery is one of the sites to be surveyed and renovated in the recent Heritage Lottery grant awarded to VRG.
VRG has also recently joined a new group that has been formed to research and restore heritage graveyards in Stirling towns and villages. It has attracted support from various local political figures and is in discussion with the Council and Historic Scotland. There is talk of developing a tourist trail of historic cemeteries and linked into ancestry.
