A PICTURESQUE kirk in the West Mainland is the latest church in Shetland to go up for sale.

The Weisdale church has an asking price of offers over £65,000, with a closing date set for 1 December.

The church is popular amongst those with a penchant for photography, with its well-kept grounds providing a floral foreground.

It is one of many buildings being sold off in Shetland by the Church of Scotland.

The B-listed church was built in the 1860s.

The garden has been maintained by members of the local community and it is hoped that the purchaser will continue this arrangement.

Some other local kirks have already been sold as part of Church of Scotland’s decision to reduce its number of buildings in Shetland.

The St Magnus Church in Yell, Sullom Church, Bressay Kirk and the church in Sand are all currently under offer.
