The Church of Scotland has produced a series of full-spectrum photos which allow viewers to immerse themselves in the beautiful surroundings of churches across the country.
The Church of Scotland hopes this project will spark a nationwide celebration of the benefits these ancient buildings bring.
“Often churches are the first place people encounter Christianity, and they help us in our mission of sharing the good news of Jesus. How we use them to best advantage is always a challenge because whilst we shape them, they also shape us.” - Rev Norman Smith, Minister at Granton Parish Church

Dalmeny Kirk is a Romanesque 12th century church at the heart of Dalmeny village.
The Kirk is Scotland’s only complete example of a Norman church.
Situated on the south side of the Firth of Forth near South Queensferry, the kirk stretches back through the centuries to the days of the early Celtic Saints.
