Very beautiful and old church. The first mention of it was in 1282. The church burned down twice and was rebuilt each time. The first fire was in 1449. The second time the Church was burnt down during the Thirty Years' War and by 1671 it was completely restored again.

Nice and competent service, you can count on help in choosing the right set of furniture, help to compose the colors of upholstery and wood. I recommend.

Aberlemno Sculptured Stones

The Aberlemno Sculptured Stones are a series of five Class I and II Early Medieval standing stones found in and around the village of Aberlemno. The stones with Pictish carvings variously date between about AD 500 and 800.

Aberlemno 1, 3 and 5 are located in recesses in the dry stone wall at the side of the road in Aberlemno. Aberlemno 2 is found in the Kirkyard, 300 yards south of the roadside stones. In recent years, bids have been made to move the stones to an indoor location to protect them from weathering, but this has met with local resistance and the stones are currently covered in the winter.

Aberlemno 4, the Flemington Farm Stone was found 30 yards from the church, and is now on display in the McManus Galleries, Dundee.
