One of the places I wanted to visit was the village of Glenco, we kept seeing signs on other trips, so in 2013, we decided to have a look. The location of the village is beautiful and we found St Mary’s Church, which stands on the north side of the main street.
The church was built to a design by Alexander Ross in 1880, along with a rectory, a school and a teacher’s house. Internally, the building is divided into a nave and a chancel. One of the undoubted highlights of the church is the carved wooden reredos behind the high altar, installed in about 1920. This includes brightly coloured depictions of Saints Columba, Kentigern (or Mungo), Ninian, and Margaret flanking the Crucifixion.
The church has several really nice stained glass windows, and they fill the church with coloured light. After we explored the church, we drove around Loch Leven, instead of carrying on to Glen Coe, as the weather was not at its best, but the rain kept at bay, long enough for me to take some photos of the Loch. We will have to wait until the weather is nicer to visit the Glen.
