Church Overview

This church was built in 1880 by the generosity of the later Bishop Chinery-Haldane and his wife. The church was designed by Alexander Ross in a simple Gothic style with a nave and chancel, a south porch and a spired bellcote on the west gable. The font, 1890, is of red Peterhead granite in memory of Mrs Burns Macdonald, descendant of an old Glencoe family; the oak font cover was added in 1935. The exquisite gilded wooden altar and reredos were gifted in 1920 by Lord & Lady Strathcona and family in memory of their mother. There are stained glass windows in memory of the first Rector, Mr MacPherson (1882-1888) and The Rev Alexander MacInnes, Rector 1891-1933.
