MORE kirks in Shetland have gone on the market as the Church of Scotland continues to sell off property in the isles.

The latest is the Sandness Church, which has an asking price of around £25,000.

It is a detached church with a gross internal area of 101 square metres.

Meanwhile the Cunningsburgh Church now has a closing date of 11 October. The Church of Scotland is looking for offers over £48,000.

The Hillswick kirk is also subject to a closing date – midday tomorrow (Tuesday).

The historic church has a price tag of offers over £40,000, and it went back on the market after the prospect of a community takeover fell through.

In October 2018, the Presbytery of Shetland voted to unite all 13 parishes into one parish, now known as Shetland Church of Scotland, and unite with the Presbytery of Aberdeen.

As part of this process the church made the decision to sell 20 of its kirks in Shetland.
