Opening Church of Scotland Canteen

The Drill Hall in Kyle of Lochalsh was erected by the Territorial Association in 1912, primarily for training, but also for community use for dances, concerts and local entertainment events. It was used as a canteen for serving personnel during WWI, then in 1940, the Church of Scotland opened it again as a canteen for military and naval services. This photograph, taken to mark the opening, shows two local ministers in the front row. On the left is Rev John MacLean, Lochalsh Parish Minister, with Rev Lachlan MacLean-Watt on the right.
