Historic Greyfriars Kirk in Aberdeen has been put back on the market after failing to attract a 'suitable' bid.
The Church of Scotland has put the historic Greyfriars Kirk in Aberdeen back on the market after it failed to attract a 'suitable' bid. The kirk, which is adjacent to Aberdeen's Marischal College, was built in 1903 by local architect A Marshall Mackenzie and is an A-listed building made of solid granite. According to the Church of Scotland's website, offers in excess of £1.27 million are invited. The church and adjacent college building have been the subject of recent local news headlines after the college buildings were professionally cleaned, leaving the church a darker colour.
