Church of Scotland, Kyle of Lochalsh

The Church of Scotland sits up the hill on the bend of Church Road, with the Drill Hall just visible beyond. As Kyle of Lochalsh expanded after the arrival of the railway in 1897, it was felt that a church building was required, and the church, probably designed by John Robertson of Inverness, was opened on Thursday 25 July 1901, with the vestry (on the right of the church) being added in 1915. The Drill hall was built in 1912 for the Territorial Army, and used as the headquarters of the Ross-shire Mountain Battery, as well as the Sunday School for a while. It was later used as a soldiers rest and canteen during World War I
