Side School, Lochaber

This building, made of corrugated metal, was once a side school in Lochaber. Before the Education (Scotland) Act, 1872, which required local authorities to provide education paid for by local taxation, most schools were administered by the Church. In the Highlands, some parishes were very large, and a second school, known as a 'side school' was provided. Teachers in the side schools were paid less and the curriculum consisted only of reading, writing and arithmetic. Other schools, with better-paid teachers, might offer additional subjects, including history and geography
