Built circa 1843 as Free Church, on re-claimed land at head of sheltered sea loch. Said to have been reduced in size, circa 1900 or earlier, window sizes and unusual steel-trussed roof members - point to major alterations having taken place long after 1843. Plain gabled box-type church; dry-dashed, painted detailing and ingoes of large rectangular windows; slate roof. West entrance gable has painted doorway and window over (coloured glass in latter), apex belfry. Plain interior, with timber V-lining to walls, handsome pulpit (?an import) with pilastered back-board and canopy over. Rubble perimeter/retaining wall bounds site.
