Avoch Church

The fishing village of Avoch is located on the northern coast of the Moray Firth on the Black Isle, Easter Ross. The parish church sits on a hill above the village, on an earlier medieval church site. The current building dates from the 1870s but incorporates a pre-Reformation aumbry, built into the vestry wall.

Avoch churchyard contains the grave of Sir Alexander Mackenzie, a native of Stornoway who became a famous Canadian explorer. The Mackenzie River in the Northwest Territories is named after him
