Nestled in the foothills of the Pentlands stands Glencorse Old Kirk
Religious, Humanist & Civil Weddings
Nestled in the foothills of the Pentlands stands Glencorse Old Kirk – the most romantic setting imaginable for a wedding ceremony. The Kirk stands in the grounds of Glencorse House which offers a magnificent location for your wedding reception and with its lush parkland, lake and verdant rhododendrons provides an idyllic backdrop for stunning photography.
Glencorse Kirk dates back to the 17th century and the famous Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson worshiped there and indeed wrote about the Kirk and its woodland setting on a number of occasions.
“If my spirit returns to earth it will be found wandering through Glencorse Woods or sitting on the old bridge at Glencorse Kirk, the finest spot on earth”.
The Kirk holds approximately 130 people and has been carefully and beautifully restored to make it into a very private and intimate venue for your wedding ceremony.
