The Kirk Above Dee Water
First published in 1895 now republished (without illustrations) in after the closure of Balmaghie Kirk in 2016. This work is republished to remind those who may forget, of the history of the Kirk and the place of history in our lives.
‘Above Dee Water is a Kirk; and about that again there is a dearer kirkyaird. It is a lonesome spot, at least for those who love not to look down upon broad water meadows in which the Lammas floods spread wide, or who cannot be content with the sough of the leaves for company about the old Manse’ (S.R.Crockett’s introduction)
This little book is not a parish history, but merely embodies a few scattered notices of Balmaghie Church since the year 1615. It has been evolved from a very slender original. The dominating figure in the following pages is,of course, the great Macmillan, whose life-story the Author hopes one day to record at full length. (see A Cameronian Apostle)
