Long Description:

The foundation stone of the United Free Church West was laid in 1879 on the west side of the village of Comrie on the north bank of the River Earn. The building was completed in 1881 to a design by George T Ewing in a French Gothic style of dark masonry and pale dressed stone.

The steeple was built on the north-east corner in a broached octagonal style. It features a clock by H & R Milne of Edinburgh, and inside, a 47 inch diameter bell.

The church merged with the United Free East Church in 1924, to become the United Free Church, and in 1956 merged with St. Kessog's Church. In 1964 it became the sole Church of Scotland place of worship in the village and was named the Parish Church.

The steeple and church are situated south of the main A85 road as it heads west out of the village, the building is surrounded by parkland with the river to the rear.
