Rhu Church

Rhu Parish Church is a particularly striking Gothic style church built in 1851 by William Spence; the church was slightly altered in 1891 by Honeyman and Keppie.

The church tower is of real interest starting as a square buttressed tower and culminating in a decorative coronet.

Rhu is a charming little village a few miles from the town of Hellensburgh.

The name Rhu comes from the Gaelic rudha meaning a promontory,the village sits on the mouth of the Gareloch.
