St Margaret's Church, Roy Bridge

Roybridge lies where the rivers Roy and Spean meet. The village expanded in the 1920s to accommodate workers on the Lochaber Project who were working on the hydroelectric dams and tunnels in the area. St Margaret's Roman Catholic Church, built in 1929, was also for the Lochaber Project workers. The church is dedicated to St Margaret who was the Queen and wife of Malcolm Canmore (Malcolm III, King of Scots). Her influence, through personal holiness, charity and religious reform, was said to have changed her husband into a good and devout man.
