The history of Dalmeny Kirk is fascinating, stretching back through the centuries to the early Celtic saints. The architecture is outstanding and is the most complete example of a Norman parish church in Scotland. The carvings on the south doorway are among the best of their kind in Britain.
Its purpose too is important and has remained constant throughout the centuries. Built to meet the spiritual needs of the people of Dalmeny it remains a village church and a living place of worship.
More about Dalmeny Kirk and its people can be found in a recent history which was compiled by Flora Johnson in 2010 after Mrs Lilian Cameron from Dunfermline presented to the congregation research notes compiled by her late son Neil.
The book, priced £5.00 can be bought from the church or by contacting the Church office on 0131 331 1100.
'THE DALMENY STONES' is a musical piece for brass band and choir, written by Chris Brown. It was inspired by the 12th Century stonework around the south doorway of the church.
