Dalmeny Kirk

Dalmeny is a village and parish in Scotland. Now more or less a suburb of South Queensferry, it falls administratively under Edinburgh, although not physically part of the city. The name is of Scottish Gaelic origin, being now Dail Mheinnidh or Dail M'Eithne in the modern language. This may refer to an ancient ecclesiastical settlement, dedicated to an obscure (female) saint Eithne; the local church is at least a thousand years old.

The refined sculptural detail of the chancel and apse arches is notable, as is a series of powerful beast-head corbels supporting the apse vault. These features are also extremely well-preserved, with the original tool-marks still visible. Outside the elaborate south doorway, which is enlivened with blind arcading above the entrance, is a unique 12th century sarcophagus carved with figures of saints in niches (now very weathered).
