Historian Ian Scott visits the ruins of the 12th century church at Kinneil lie a short distance to the west of Kinneil House. Just walk over the bridge, crossing a rocky ravine, to reach the site. The site is one of the earliest places for religious worship in the area. It was abandoned in the 17th century and partly destroyed by fire shortly after. All that remains is the western gable end and some historic gravestones. A bell from the church can be seen in Kinneil Museum. Nearby is the site of the medieval village of Kinneil.
