039 A large and handsome edifice, built by Subscription about the year 1842. The Revd Dr. [Reverend Doctor] Pratt his "Buchan" thus describes it. "St. James's (Episcopal) Church stands on a rising ground at about a mile from this interesting locality." (i.e. from the remains of St. Olaus church) This is a plain, but tolerably correct, specimen of the early English style of ecclesiastical architecture. The entrance is at the west end, under the tower, which is surmounted by a spire ninety feet high. The chancel is lighted by three narrow lancets, filled with stained glass by Wailes of New Castle. There is a handsome font of polished granite, and a Small but very good organ. The church was built by Subscription, under the liberal patronage of the late Earl and Countess of Erroll in 1843. (Dedicated to St. James the Less the first Bishop of Jerusalem.) Standing at an elevation of nearly two hundred feet above the level of the sea, the church is a well-known landmark to coasting traders and fishermen". pp. [pages] 40 and 41.. Chap III.
