Rhynie Graveyard

tomb Gordon Rhynie Gothic

The church of Rhyny was attached to the see of Moray and the old Parish church St Luag’s (Saint Moluag was a missionary and contemporary of Saint Columba who brought the Christian faith to the Picts) stood on the ground of today’s graveyard. Nothing is left of the ancient building. The kirk was a ruin in the later 18th century and in 1823 demolished, the Duke of Gordon had a new church built.
