Castlehead Church was built in the 1871and originally called the West Relief Church, to house the graves of those persons deemed to be too sinful to be buried in consecrated ground.
The most famous occupant of the graveyard is Paisley poet Robert Tannahill. Just a few yards away is buried Jessie Tennant, reputedly the Jessie, the Flower O’ Dunblane.
Another claim to fame of the Church is that the ancestors of USA President Ronald Reagan were members of the Church and may be buried in the Churchyard.
Unfortunately, due to amalgamation with the Laigh Kirk Church, Castlehead Church closed in early 2011. It’s future is still uncertain.
