On un-numbered road 250 metres E of A90, beyond present church and kirkyard.

The old church of Rathen is located in the centre of a small graveyard a short distance north-east of the later Rathen West Church for which there are published inscriptions. An early church was founded on or near the site in the 6th century, and was said to have been consecrated by St Ethernan. The latest church on this site, the ruins of which can be seen today, dates from the mid 17th century and was partially rebuilt in the late 18th century.
