Rev. George Taylor and his wife outside Livingstone Church Manse c.1925

The first Church manse was located almost straight across the road from the Church. Known as the Greystones, this was the manse of Livingstone Church until 1953. It was a fairly large building and later became a hotel (The Greystones Hotel) before lying derelict and finally being demolished. The ground lay empty for several years until recently, when a new residential development was built on the site. The surrounding wall is all that remains from the original building.

After the departure of Mr. Nimmo in 1953, the Greystones Manse was sold. The new manse was further up the town, located at 32 High Road, and the first minister to live in the manse was Mr. Bisset. After the retiral of Mr. Lafferty in 2011 – and with an escalating repair bill – the decision was taken to sell the manse and buy a joint manse along with Ardeer Parish Church. 32 High Road was sold on 28th February 2013.
