I lived at Shottskirk for some years, whilst my father, John Archibald, was headmaster at the local school. The shadow of the church looms large as I travel along the M8, as does the knowledge that my maternal great great grandfather was minister, William Martin Watt, at the church for sixty years. My abiding memory is of my father rehearsing on the church organ, with only the organ loft lit, and the church embraced in dark around me as a child wtih the sound of the organ resounding through the pews (now gone). I occasionally stop at the Church, look down to the school, and remember a happy childhood in Shottskirk in the nineteen sixties. Adulthood has been spent in London and Edinburgh but my children are all aware of where my childhood was spent - in the biting winds of North Lanarkshire and all the prouder for it.

Greetings to all from Australia. My maiden is Jessie Wood. I was a Sunday School teacher and choir member before leaving for Australia in 1951. My daughter Jean was baptised there in 1956 when my husband and I were in Scotland on holiday.

Hi, I've been meaning to say for a few weeks a thank you all who made us feel so welcome to your church when we visited your open day. I thought it would be a 10 minute stop, but we ended up sitting there for a good 45 minutes to an hour drinking tea and chatting to everybody. It was a very nice time and we were all so glad we came over. We came from Glasgow, and there were two visitors with us from Poland. Please accept our best wishes with your ministry and your fund raising in the future.

I was called Isa Colligan and grew up at 5 Bogfoot Rd, and emigrated to the States in 1958, went to Shotskirk school and Airdrie Academy, and attended Kirk 'Shotts. My Dad was Matt Colligan, and Mom was May Jack. This web site is great, especially school pictures, too bad names ar missing on some of them. I left Airdrie Academy around 1957,and would love to hear from any old school pals.

In 2002, I visited your church. My great grandparents, William Leishman and Ann Forsyth were married in your church on 3 March 1846. I also visited the Forsyth Farm near Shotts. Many of Ann Forsyth's ancestors are buried in your churchyard. Robert Leishman, Tampa, Florida, USA
