150 years of Craigrownie Church, Cove

To mark Craigrownie Church's 150th anniversary, Douglas Dow compiled this history.

UNTIL the 19th century the Rosneath Peninsula, which in older records is referred to as the Isle of Rosneath, had a population of about 500.

Cove's Tin Hut Church demolished

A PIECE of Rosneath Peninsula and local religious history was demolished in March 2013.

It was not a surprise, but it was a sad day for many local residents when the ‘Tin Hut Church’ was pulled down.

St Columba marked 150 years

ONE hundred and fifty years of worship were celebrated at Helensburgh's St Columba Church on July 3 2011 — just weeks before its union with another congregation. 

The 150th anniversary of the Sinclair Street building was marked at a packed service of thanksgiving on July 3, and the birthday came as the congregation — at its present site since 1861 — prepared to say farewell to the historic building.

The Chapel of St Mahew

The text and illustrations below are the entire contents of a leaflet compiled and published in 1955 by David McRoberts, giving the history of the Chapel of St Mahew at Cardross. The leaflet was donated to Helensburgh Heritage Trust in 2010 by Gillian George.

 

 

ABOUT a quarter of a mile to the north of Cardross village, in Dunbartonshire, lies a small parcel of land called Kirkton of Kilmahew.
