Biggar Kirk, Biggar.

Biggar Kirk, the parish church, dates back to 1545. It has just celebrated its 450th anniversary. It is the last pre-reformation church in Scotland. Biggar Kirk is a beautifully constructed building, the floor plan is in the shape of a Christian Cross and the restored stone walls and outstanding stained glass windows make it worth visiting.

The Church was built by the Flemings of Boghall Castle. Mary Fleming of Boghall was one of Mary Queen of Scots Four Marys. Each summer the crowning of a Fleming Queen takes place in Biggar on it's annual Gala Day.

Biggar is full of historic buildings - many of the fine buildings on it's High Street are listed buildings.
