Lyne Kirk is an ancient and historic church of the Church of Scotland. It is situated on top of a mound 4.5 miles west of Peebles in the ancient county of Peeblesshire
The church was founded in the 12th century in the reign of William I of Scotland – ‘The Lion’, as the Chapel of Lyne in the dependency of the church at nearby Stobo and overseen by the Bishopric of Glasgow. While still part of the see of Glasgow, Lyne became a parish in its own right in the 14th century. The author of the “Fasti Ecclesiae Scoticanae” (Succession of ministers from the Reformation to 1915) the Reverend Hew Scott remarked in that publication that he believed Lyne was the cradle of Christianity in Peeblesshire.
