We were honoured with a visit by The Lord High Commissioner, Lord Hope of Craighead and his wife to Markinch this week. As Her Majesty The Queen’s official representative at the General Assembly, he undertakes certain official visits on her behalf during General Assembly week.
Robert Balfour acted in his capacity as the Lord Lieutenant of Fife and the party heard short talks from Bruce Manson of Markinch Heritage Group about the history of the church and the ongoing archaeological projects, and Amanda McFarlane from Fife Coast & Countryside Trust spoke about the Fife Pilgrim Way and the links to Markinch.
After a light lunch, kindly provided by Jessica Balfour, the party were given a tour of the church, the tower and the churchyard.
