Gargunnock Parish Church was built in 1774 to replace a 17th-century church. John Honeyman & Keppie made alterations to the porch, platform and the heating chamber, and also repaired doors. New furnishings, the gallery panelling and the pulpit may also have been installed at this time. 1

Authorship: This is one of over 270 jobs carried out in the office of John Honeyman & Keppie (Honeyman, Keppie & Mackintosh from 1901) during Mackintosh's time there. Mackintosh undoubtedly worked on many of these, but there is no specific evidence for his involvement in this case.
