This cemetery is very old and isnt in the best shape. Some of the gravestones look very good. There is also a little building in the kirk yard. Worth a look.

I had run into Banff to get groceries and pick up some wood. It was spitting rain off and on and I was walking to Tescos and just happened to see this cemetery with the gates just open very slightly. What an invitation! I personally spent about an hour, all by myself musing and wondering about all those who live forever thanks to the care given to the upkeep. Parts of it are quite ancient. The skull and cross bones, the hourglass, the skeletons, angels and even one blowing Gabriel's horn, all kinds of novel decorations on the stones. I included photos here of some of the more "recent" stones because you can read the inscriptions. That was fascinating. Most all had a description of who the person was: solicitor, rector, fisherman, lace maker ... The knight, shown in one of the photos is a short guy - if his effigy was to scale, but he was the Big Guy of Banff once upon a time. But of course with all that armor. I'm a fan of graveyards, but this one was fun because there it was in a busy part of town: a pub on once side, Tesco on another, apartments behind the knight and then an auto repair shop. Standing inside the iron fence I half wondered if I made a noise would anyone on the outside hear me? Fun!!

A tiny cemetery in Banff, with a history that goes back hundreds of years. We had this site on our list then took it off because of time constraints. We were then walking in Banff one day and walked right past it. It was back on the list and we were quite happy to spend 1/2 an hour exploring the site. There are markers that date back to the 1500’s. It was a well spent ½ hour.
If you do go to Banff take the time to go here you will not be disappointed.
