Gifford Kirk

Yester Parish Church is located at the east end of the High Street.

The church is quite small but with its simple tower, spire and white harling it is worth a visit.

The church was completed in 1710. It contains the bell from the old Yester Estate church which had been built in 1492.

Other interesting Gifford buildings include the Village Hall, Tweeddale Arms Hotel, Yester Castle and the Goblin Ha’ Hotel.

There is an interesting long thin grass space in Gifford running parallel to the lime tree avenue up to the Yester House main entry (for photos follow ‘Gifford buildings’ link at base of this page).

On the other side of the avenue is a lovely park enclosed by the river and mature trees.
