    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.

    An extensive cemetery beside the St Andrews Cathedral containing many old and important Gravestones and an ancient Well house in the grounds . It is an area of great surrounding beauty and is often overlooked by visitors to the area .There are also some Commonwealth Graves from both World wars

    Set 400 yards back from the A915 This is a quiet rural graveyard overlooking open countryside . The Graveyard has been here since 1645 and has many gravestones from the 17th and 18th century. The grass is well maintained and the graveyard contains Commonwealth Graves
