Beautiful building, very tranquil and calming after busy shopping. Nice to read the history, and just reflect on God's presence in this place through the years and ponder on what His plans are for the future.

Lovely old church dating back to 1100. Much of interest and some helpful guides in attendance. Worth a visit in centre of town.

St. John's Kirk is the oldest church in Perth and worth a visit. Free admission with a guide book of information about the Kirk. The church has no original stained glass windows but nevertheless the modern windows are fine. The old pews have beautiful carvings on them and there are some 15century candelabras . Overall a lovely church .
