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.
Ecclesiastical building in use as such. Listed for its historic interest only, having been built in the same year as the Disruption and in defiance of the landowner (Stewart-MacKenzie) who would not grant land for a site.
