Back in the 1150’s the Knights Templar built their chief house and church in what is now called Temple Scotland.

After the the Knights Templar were disbanded the church and lands were taken over by the Knights Hospitallers, also called the Knights of St. John.

The ruins of this old parish church, which date back to the 14th century, are all that’s left on the land that once held the knights church.


Here is a sign discussing the Knights Templar and a bit of the local history.
