A ‘homely building’

John R Hume considers a country church in Fife with a colourful history.


THE place-name ‘Dairsie’ is embedded in the history of the Church of Scotland and in Scotland.

The reason for the celebrity of this place is its connection with John Spottiswoode, who was Archbishop of St Andrews from 1610. Dairsie parish was a rural one, close to the town of St Andrews. It had a castle, built in the late 16th century, and a bridge over the river Eden, constructed in about 1530 for James Beaton, Roman Catholic Archbishop of St Andrews.
