Govan Old Church stands, partly contained by its pear-shaped graveyard, just to the north of Govan Road in the centre of Govan. A strip of open land to the west of the Pearce Institute leads past the war memorial to a gate in the southern end of the graveyard. The church lies directly ahead, partly obscured by an avenue of trees along the path leading to the main doorway at its southern end.
Though the best of the Govan Stones were taken into the church from the graveyard in 1926, there remain many fascinating gravestones on view outside the church. These include a number showing the traditional post-Reformation symbols of mortality. There is also a rather fine standing stone cross near the gateway into the graveyard that in terms of design and moss coverage could easily pass as Pictish.
