  • Visited the yearly Hielander Whisky tasting festival which takes place in this big church. Great location, and one can still enjoy some of the interior like the arches, stained glass and organ.

  • Huge indoor space, beautiful woodwork especially in the ceiling. A climb up into the galleries is possible for the nimble. Helpful guides tell the story of the building.
  • Lovely church. The current display (thru 7 July 2019?) is fabulous! It describes & details the history of the church through the use of interactive screens. An added bonus is photos of locally well-known photographer depicting 7 signs of mercy.
