Old Kiltearn church

Kiltearn (Gaelic: Cill Tighearna) is a parish in Ross and Cromarty, Scotland. It is in the Presbytery of Ross.

The principal settlement is the village of Evanton, and the parish extends almost to Dingwall and about halfway to Alness. The old Kiltearn church and burial ground are on the shore of the Cromarty Firth. The church is ruinous but dates from 1790.[1] The current church (Free Church Continuing) is on the main street in Evanton.
