|History of site:||
A parish church, dedicated to the Virgin Mary, was founded at Edrom around the beginning of the 12th century. Little remains of the original church which underwent various rebuilds and extensions. The south aisle is one of oldest parts of this building which originated as a chapel dedicated to Our Lady and St John the Baptist, built by Robert Blackadder, Bishop of Glasgow in 1499. Immediately to the west of the present parish church stands the main burial vault for the Logans of Edrom. A decorated Norman doorway from the original 12th century church now forms the entrance to this vault.
