Gartocharn, Kilmaronock Church (CoS). An 1813 re-build on an ancient site, this church is also known as the "Summer Church", as it is only used in the warmer months. Another view. NS 452 875. Link. Grade B listed. It should be no surprise that there is also a "Winter Church", which is in the village of Gartocharn, at NS 428 863. Built as a Relief Church in 1772, re-built 1911, it shows on the 1862 OS map as United Presbyterian. Another view. Grade B listed - beware the reference therein to this being the Summer Church, an error, which the history confirms. There is mention here (2010) of the proposed disposal of this church, but this news item (scroll to the end) implies the Summer/Winter alternation was still happening in 2013. All Martin Richter (2013).
