“Worshiping with the Queen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

I have visited this church several times. I was there on Sunday when the Queen, Prince Philip and Prince Charles were also there. This is a lovely small church which allows small glimpses of the Queen or her hat.
The service was lovely and it was surreal singing the national anthem in sight of the Queen. There is a great little book telling the history of the church.

“Sat in seat of the Queen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

I was overwhelmed visiting this old Scottish church that our Queen worships at...loved the atmosphere and the humbleness of the Church and was fascinated by its history of a favourite place of worship of the royals it is a very pretty little church with gorgeous stained glass windows and lovely grounds with a beautiful view of the Scottish countryside from the grounds there is a garden seat of the Queen when she likes to sit outside in the sunshine and admire the lovely God given view there...I sat in that seat and imagined the Queens thoughts as she sat there maybe the Sunday previous to my visit as she was in residence at Balmoral that week,...a wonderful experience.

“Nice Little Royal Church”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

We received a warm welcome from the lady inside the church who gave us and an American party an interesting talk about the history and the royal family's connection with the church. Very nicely decorated yet quite humble as well.

“Very simple but beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

This was a great church and considering its only just over a 100 years old they it was built to the old style, great stained windows and the view of the royal seating, there is also bust around for past monarchs, the lady was very nice to us and our children told them all about the queen and the history of the church. We got some great pics inside and out
