Scotland's Oldest Church Bells

Efforts to save the bells of St Andrew's and St George's Church in central Edinburgh, reputed to be Scotland's oldest peal of church bells, have been successful.

The bells were installed in St Andrew's and St George's Church in the late 18th Century but, over the intervening years, their condition deteriorated.

Enough money has now been raised to refurbish the eight bells and the tower in which they hang.

The last three bells are in the process of being removed so they can be taken to a foundry in London for re-tuning.
