Cathcart Old is a fascinating and beautiful building. It is the second building of the congregation, to an original design 1923 by Clifford & Lunan, but completed 1928 by Watson, Salmon & Gray. The size is enhanced by the low porch and range of vestries. South transept contains a display of the church’s history over 800 years; the north transept was converted in 1962 to the McKellar Memorial Chapel. Tapestry of The Last Supper by Charles Marshall, stained glass by James Crombie. Organ by John R Miller 1890, restored and converted to electro-mechanical action 1994.
