Dalmellington Parish Church

The church hall was originally Dalmellington`s second parish church and was built in 1766 to replace the ancient pre-Reformation church (which stood near the present library). The new church was built by James Armour, mason, of Mauchline. It was not popular with the congregation as it was cold and too small.

It became a lodging house after it was replaced by the current Parish Church and was refurbished as a hall towards the end of the 19th century.

Dalmellington Parish Church (Formerly "The Kirk o` The Covenant"), has a commanding position overlooking the town. It was built in 1846 and made use of local Dunaskin sandstone. It has some excellent examples of stained glass windows. The red doors are said to symbolise the blood of The Covenanters.
