At one stage Holm parish boasted three separate churches (U F, U P and the old established Church of St Nicholas), this manse belonging to the former U P church. Following the Union, the single minister resided in the former Free Church manse, while the congregation worshiped in the former U P Church, destroyed by fire in the 1920s, but now rebuilt as Holm Parish Church. No longer in use as a manse.
