|Non Sinking Church
Location: Vigeans - Church of St Vigeans
Date / Time: Circa 1736
Further Comments: Legend said that building materials for the church were carried into position by a water kelpie. The creature said if anyone working for the church ever killed themselves, the church would sink into a great lake which lay deep under the building. In the eighteenth century the minister of the parish did commit suicide and some stories say many people gathered near the church to watch it being consumed into the ground. Needless to say, many people were also left disappointed when their expectations were not met.
