The parish church is in the Kirkton of Balquhidder, Grid Ref: NN536209, along a minor road some 3 miles west of its junction with the A84. The present building was built in 1855 on a site close to the remains of two earlier Churches and above the flood plain where St Angus reputedly built a stone oratory sometime between 700 and 800 AD. Angus was buried higher up the slope and an engraved flagstone is said to have covered his grave. This stone is now inside the present Church. In 1631, a small stone Church was built partially over an earlier site, Eaglas Beag, said to have been built over St Angus` grave. This fell into disrepair and the present Church was opened for worship in 1855.
The Church is a “B” listed building and houses a display of artefacts and literature covering all aspects of its history. Of interest and still in use are the very old wooden offering ladles with their long handles which can reach the length of the pews. Also in use to this day is an ancient stone basin, similar to others in the area, which is the font. It is used in baptisms, although a pewter quaich holds the baptismal water these days.
In 1996, Balquhidder Church was linked with Killin and Ardeonaig Parish Church and the Minister lives in the manse in Killin. For a detailed history of the church see the guide to Balquhidder Church by Elizabeth Beauchamp which is available from the church. See also the attached Bibliography.
Lochearnhead and Strathyre both had churches which were also built in the 19th century but these were sold in 1987 and are now private homes. This means that apart from the tiny Episcopalian church of St Angus in Lochearnhead, the parish church is located in Balquhidder, on a minor road some 5 or 6 miles from the two main villages. The parish graveyard has always been in Balquhidder.
