Kinnettles kirk, a church is a real delight to watch. It was designed by Samuel Bell and was built in 1812 close to the other one which was built in the 13th century. The Steeple Church and St. Andrew's Church in Dundee was also designed by Samuel Bell. Prior to Bell's church being built, the Manse, which is now a private family home, just over the south wall of the cemetery, had been rebuilt in 1801 and renovated in 1811.

An interesting feature is the stained glass windows. These windows were paid for by the women of Kinnettles to commemorate the ten local men who fell while in action during the 1914-18 First World War. The interior and exterior of the churchyards, give an insight about the lifestyle of the communities and how they may have lived. Tracing the original placements of the above is difficult, however. At least these memorials have regained some dignity by the current layout.
