Clocks

Bill Ramsay was the hard-working and well respected  doctor in the parish for many years. When he passed away in 1966, many of his patients donated to a fund to enable a memorial in his memory to be placed in Dunscore.  The decision of a public meeting was that clocks should be placed in the church tower and permission for this was granted by the Church of Scotland. The clocks were duly  installed and a plaque bearing the following inscription positioned adjacent to the church gate.
