Statement of Interest

Said to have been a Roman Catholic chapel in Braemar. Several companies, including Edward Bellhouse & Co (the ballroom at Balmoral) and Morton and Scott of Liverpool (relief church, Royal Edinburgh Hospital), seized the market for relief churches and other temporary structures in the later 19th century. Comparatively few survive.
