CHURCHES and GRAVEYARDS in Dumfries and Galloway
DUMFRIESSHIRE -- Churches and Graveyards
Views from the Approaches to Kirkbride Graveyard
Approaches Old Church Ruins Gravestones 1 Gravestones 2 Fallen Stones
To get here follow the Coshogle farm road from Enterkinfoot and park close by the roadside before this bridge.
Follow the track over the hill and after a short trek you approach Kirkbride farm.  The kirkyard is on the hillside behind.
  The enclosing wall of this graveyard has no corners.  This 'strange' feature is often found in similarly old graveyards.
This is a Christianised version of an ancient pagan belief that the Evil-one (the Devil) lurked in dark corners.  
The light coloured mortar seen here shows where the wall was repaired recently.
