Centuries of local history were brought back to life at Rothesay Cemetery on Friday as the United Church of Bute held its first ‘graveyard quiz’.

Proving that creeping around a graveyard in the evening needn’t be seen as something suspicious, groups of intrepid explorers were set the task of answering 20 questions relating to just a few of the hundreds of gravestones standing proud around the church.

A ‘pie and a pint’ supper afterwards helped to further boost the church’s funds while giving clue-hunters a chance to fiund out how well they had fared in the quiz.
