Stonehaven Dunnottar Church of Scotland

Linked with Stonehaven South

Dunnottar Parish Church has a proud history of Christian witness dating back to the 5th century when the earliest church of that name was built on this site. The parish is on the south side of the town of Stonehaven and includes the Old Town with its harbour, part of the “new” town, a substantial rural area and the world famous Dunnottar Castle. The church is located beside Dunnottar Woods on the south of the town.

Stonehaven South Church of Scotland has recently been linked to Dunnottar Church as a result of local reorganisation within the area administered by the Presbytery of Kincardine and Deeside. While both churches remain independent in most respects they will share the same minister, the Rev Rosslyn Duncan, who previously served the congregation of Dunnottar. A letter announcing the initial program can be viewed HERE.

Looking toward the future the churches at Stonehaven South and Dunnottar expect to continue to offer the people of Stonehaven opportunities for worship and witness in God's service and to share equally with all other Christian churches in the Stonehaven area in preaching the Gospel and ministering to the people of God.

Up to date information on Dunnottar Churches' ministry and activities can be found via the links to our church magazine “Spotlight” and summaries of weekly Sunday Services can be read by following the links under “Sunday News” below. Details of up-coming events, both spiritual and social, are available by the links in the “Dunnottar Diary”.
