Statement of Interest

Ecclesiastical building in use as such. First application to

Lord Lovat by Free Church congregation for ground on

which to build church said to have been turned down. Circa

1845 he donated present site, on which it is said he had

intended to build RC church, but had eventually (1826) built

that at Eskadale, the situation at Kilarlity being too close

to Parish Church of Scotland and not welcomed by Established congregation. When donated 1845/6 the site was said to have

on it stone prepared for the RC church, which was utilised

for the present Free Church. (Information per present

Minister, 1984).
