Arisaig and District Community Council


The Church of Scotland has resolved to sell the church. A meeting, organised by Susan Carstairs, was held on Wednesday March 13th. 2024 to discuss the idea of a community buy-out. The meeting was well attended and everyone had a say. If you have an interest in being part of an ongoing discussion about this please contact Susan. This is not an ADCC initiative, but if you don't have Susan's contact info you can email us and we will put you in touch. 

Built 1810-11 as a Roman Catholic chapel by Clanranald of Arisaig and designed by James Gillespie Graham, it is a simple rectangular building with the entrance porch between two windows on the south elevation. Built of the local stone with grey painted margins, the wooden Y-tracery of the windows is painted red. Simple interior recast and re-orientated to west when the building became Church of Scotland in the mid 1930s. Pulpit, communion table and lectern given in memory of Sir Arthur and Lady Gertrude Nicholson (d.1932 & 1920) of Arisaig House. Mural tablets to their sons killed 1914 & 1915. Bellcote erected by Miss C C Astley (Lady Nicholson’s sister) of Faire-na-Sgurr. United with Mallaig St Columba’s in March 2008.
