Weem, Church of Scotland. This was previously in the "Unknown" section, as follows - "George Duchow has a family film clip made in Scotland in 1967. There is a church at 1 minute 32 seconds into the clip, which can be viewed on Youtube here. Can you advise the location?".  My appreciation to Greg Mishevski for the identification. The church was built as St. David's Episcopal Church in 1875, and acquired by the CoS in 1918 as the new parish church. Link1. Link2.
