Kilmaronock Parish Church

In May 2017 Kilmaronock Church closed and all services are now held in Gartocharn Church.

Kilmaronock Old Kirk Trust has been set up in order to save the Grade-B listed classical building, preserve its long history of community use and enhance the building for today's and future generations of the Croftamie and Gartocharn Communities and a place of historic interest for the many visitors to the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park.

The Parish of Kilmaronock has been a Christian community since the time of St Kessog in the sixth century. The Parish was already long established when in 1324 King Robert the Bruce transferred the patronage from the Earls of Lennox to the Abbey of Cambuskenneth at Stirling. The present church building at Kilmaronock (shown above left) dates only from 1813, but a screen at the entrance to the nave records the names of the incumbents of the charge from 1325 to the present day.
