Yester Parish Church, Gifford

With a commanding presence at the top of Gifford's Main Street, Yester Parish Church is a fine example of the traditional T-plan Scottish kirk, white harled with a bold square tower topped by a spire.

Completed in 1710, it was recently restored, its stunning interior adorned with some exquisite original woodwork.
