    Never knew you could rate this place. It looks very nice and it is gothic style. You need to go while you are at St. Andrews.

    The bell tower is absolutely amazing but the other bits of the church isn't my cup of tea. The tower is good to look at when driving through Kingsbarns.

    We visited Vicarsford Chapel (also known as Lady Leng Memorial Chapel) yesterday evening. It was our second visit, our previous visit being when it was dark. Dark you might say, why visit when it is dark? Because it is beautifully illuminated!
    Best and easiest accessed from the A914. Heading north, in the direction of Newport-on-Tay, just north of Drumoig, there is an unclassified road off to the right. Take this road and follow it for a short distance, and you will see the gates to Vicarsford Cemetery on your right hand side. The road is very quiet, and there shouldn't be an issue with parking at the side of the Cemetery gates.
    After entering the cemetery, which is quite extensive, follow the path upwards to Vicarsford Chapel which is sited at the top of the hill.
    Vicarsford Chapel was constructed between 1895-1897 by local architect Thomas Martin Cappon for the Leng family and in particular as a memorial for Lady Leng. It is a small and relatively tall Gothic structure, rectangular in shape and has an apsidal southern end. It was built from fine coursed sandstone from Caen, France. The chapel has a tall, steeply pitched roof which is clad in copper.
    This is a lovely quiet scenic spot which features a beautiful Gothic chapel.
    Vicarsford Cemetery is also worth a look around too.
    The chapel is available to hire for Weddings, Christenings and other similar functions.
    Because of the height the chapel has been built at, it can be seen from quite a distance. It takes on a completely different look in the dark when illuminated.

  • This is the most historic church in st Andrew's and is sometimes known as the cradle of reformation in scotland. The original church dated from 1144 but was then rebuilt and moved, the current building dates from 1410.
    It is a beautiful looking church from the outside, unfortunately it was closed as we would have liked to have had a look inside. Worth a look!

    There has been a church on this site since 1645 ,the present church was built in 1808 . It is an active church and is linked to St Leonards in St Andrews . Services have been maintained between the two churches but other activities have been postponed till the covid crisis is past . The Church has an informative Facebook page with lots of information about fund raising and church groups . The church looks out onto a rolling pasture and is quite beautiful
