Innes Street, Plockton

The house with the porch, on the left of the photograph, was the manse for the Free Church just next door on Innes Street in Plockton. The Church was built in 1845 after the Disruption in the Church of Scotland, which saw ministers leaving the established church to set up the Free Church. For a time, the local congregation had to meet out of doors in an area just outside Plockton still known as the "open air church", until they had a new building in which to worship. The manse is thought to have been built around the same time, along with the adjoining building on the right, which was for many years used as the schoolhouse
