ON PRINT -
Warddykes' stacks when turned our backs,
St. Vigeans comes in sight,
The kindly Manse, the auld Kirkyard,
Green braes both left and right.
A charm has blessed that burnside path
Since in the auld lang syne
Old Aberbrothock's graceless sons
Knelt at St. Vigian's shrine.
Now greater flocks, with finer fleece,
Are penned in warmer fold
Than that to which the Kelpie drew
The stones in days of old.
Through changes all, a beacon still,
Long may that auld kirk stand,
And point the way to scenes more fair,
Within a better land.
POEM - HALF HOLIDAY RAMBLES
BY JAMES CRIGHTON - 1883
Opposite North Tarry, the water of the Brothock
laves the base of the conical hillock on which
the Kirk of St. Vigeans has stood for many centuries.
