Situated in the picturesque Scottish valley of Abbey St Bathans, the Abbey Kirk is available for hire for weddings, parties, concerts, meetings, and more. The Kirk's grounds run down to the River Whiteadder with ancient wild oak woodland on the adjacent bank accessible by a footbridge. There is a churchyard on the south side of the building with views over the Kirk Field of the fabulous Victorian Gothic mansion house. 

Thank you for this amazing venue, so beautiful, we had a wonderful wedding, everyone had a ball.

Inside, the Kirk can seat up to 120 people depending on the type of event. The surrounding grounds can fit a marquee up to 4000 square feet in size with space for  catering vans and event toilets. There is a car parking area for up to 120 vehicles next to the churchyard wall and plenty of space for camping in the adjacent field. We have many local contacts that can help you make your event extra special. 

Thank you so much for such a wonderful party at the Abbey. It was lovely to see how beautifully the marquee sat next to the river with the candles - a perfect setting. Thanks so much for a lovely party.

We all thoroughly enjoyed the ceilidh concert last week. It was so good, so cosy and generally such a well organised and relaxed affair.

We were absolutely delighted to be in Abbey St Bathans and use the Old Kirk and river site for our wedding celebration. We felt so special in such a beautiful setting and everyone shared our love for this perfect spot. Your warmth, help and kind spirit made us feel welcome and at home. We are so grateful and it will always be a special place for us.
