St. Vigeans Church

Blogging, colour

Sitting on top of it’s grassy knoll, close to the Brothick Burn, St Vigeans Church has always been for me the epitome of a red sandstone building.

Someday I’d like to be there towards sunset on a clear day. The church tower faces west and the hue of the sandstone looks amazing against a darkening blue sky.
