St Ninian's Church of Scotland, Nairn.

St Ninian's church was originally built for the Free Church of Scotland in 1880-81. It was built by Andrew Maitland and Sons at a cost of about £7000 and was consecrated by Rev Dr Kennedy of Dingwall on Thursday 29 December 1881. All of the church's 1200 seats were taken for the consecration service.

The Free Church of Scotland was created as a result of the Disruption of 1843. In that year, almost 500 ministers walked out of the Church of Scotland General Assembly in protest at the system of patronage being practised in the church. They formed the Church of Scotland Free, later known as the Free Church of Scotland.
