Biographical history

The Episcopalians of Lochlee and Lethnot were driven out of their parish churches in 1716, after which they built new meeting houses on the Rowan and in Glen Lethnot. The Lethnot congregation died out by 1800 and the present church (St Drostan's) was built in 1879 in memory of the former Bishop of Brechin, Alexander Penrose Forbes, by his brother. It is the fourth Episcopalian church to have been constructed in Glenesk. There has been no resident clergyman at St Drostan's since 1921 and Lochlee was served from Fasque (1921-1942), Montrose (1942-1946), Drumtochty (1946-1953 and Brechin (1953 to date). In 1983 the charge was renamed Tarfside. Since 2005 the Reverend Jane Nelson has been Priest in Charge. The church's constitution was updated in 2009. The church is also the site of a self-catering lodge which can be used by groups or individuals.
