Interesting little church and graveyard on the way to the very interesting Glen Affric NNR area
Nov 2019
You will pass this little church while driving west of Drumnadrocit on the A831 on the way to the spectacular Glen Affric NNR area.

This is worth a short stop. I didn't get a chance to go inside the church. Pictures I have seen here look pretty nice. The day was also overcast and a bit rainy when I arrived which affected picture quality.

After stopping, I highly recommend that you continue on to the Glen Affric NNR area. The spectacular Plodda Falls is alone worth the drive.

Also, not far west of this church, take the short drive off the A831 to see the Corrimony Chambered Cairn.

What a beautiful little church
Aug 2019
This little church located on the road from Drumnadrochit to Glen Affric on A831 is absolutely beautiful. It sits alongside the main road, it is so small but beautifully crafted and well looked after. There was a service underway when I visited, perhaps 10 people in all attending. Within the grounds there is an equally well kept graveyard and a small car park. It is a lovely place, serene and with a heritage of over 100 years, although periodic restorations have taken place since then. Original architect was the same who designed the St. Andrew's Cathedral in Inverness.

Lovely old, small church on beautiful, loch side land. There are a few small, well defined paths around the location that provide beautiful views of the loch.

There is a small cemetery next to the church with many gravesite....many old, some new. Very interesting.

Interesting church

It's not large but it's a very pleasant village church with a fine interior and there are many worse ways to pass the time in the village

Lovely Church.

Definitely worth a visit even if you are not religious. Beautiful architecture and steeped in history.
Not really for children.
