  1. Oh, lovely! I especially like the pointed arch brickwork at the top – what a pretty detail!
    Thanks as always for playing along at WWDD!

  2. Calling by as another participant in WWDD, a great choice for the meme

  3. That door is awesome in a reflective way. The black is more somber that the red of Episcopal churches, perhaps the bark color allows us to redirect our energy toward worship inside. I suppose the Scots wanted to prepare us prior to our entrance…the brick surrounding the portal is stunning. Nice!

  4. That’s a very serious looking door!

  5. Very good shot.

    Regards and best wishes

  6. And I bet that door “clangs” beautifully in the key of C when it closes! Nice shot.

  7. How very Presbyterian that cross is!

    «Louis» thanks you for this fine contribution to Monday Doorways.

  8. I love crosses and this celtic cross on the doors is lovely!
