Reasons for trip

This is a lovely small church, typical of so many found in Scotland. Standing on the green the church was built in 1783 and is a small white building with a small bird cage belfry. The porch was added in the C20th to protect the congregation from the rain as the entered the church.

At the back are two external stairs leading to the galleries. These were thought to be for the Duke of Argyll and the Laird of Lochbuie. The story is that they could not decide who would have the privilege of facing the minister, so they faced each other instead.

Inside it is very simple with whitewashed walls and wood ceiling. On the north wall is a tall pulpit (preaching box) with a reading desk below. Pews on the ground floor all face the pulpit.

The church is open all times and is just a short distance from the ferry terminal on the Iona Road. It is just beyond the Craignure Inn and opposite the police station. The post code is PA65 6AZ and the grid reference is NM 721368.
