Bargains on biblical scale in Kirk sales
The Church of Scotland has put a number of old kirks on the market at bargain-basement prices to try to raise funds and sell off unwanted properties.
Among some of the more keenly-priced buildings is the Kilbride Church near Millhouse, Argyll, on
ADVERTISEMENT sale for offers over £25,000, while Holywood Church in Dumfries, is on the market for upwards of £35,000.
Offers over £40,000 are being invited for the Grade B listed Bargrennan Church in Newton Stewart.
On the upside, most are historic properties in beautiful rural locations and surrounded by stunning countryside. However, some have no running water, require the urgent services of plumbers and electricians and have a graveyard attached.
Buyers are warned that if they are unhappy with the proximity of the departed, it costs around £4,000 to exhume and move a body.
