Statement of Interest

This distinctive small chapel overlooking Loch Kinord exhibits boldness of design. It is thought that it may have been the chapel for nearby Dinnet House (see separate listing) which was designed by the renowned local architect A Marshall Mackenzie. It is possible that Mackenzie was the architect here as there are several design elements which are similar to Dinnet House, such as the stone mullions and crowstepped gables. The long 8-light window takes good advantage of the buildings setting, looking N down to Loch Kinord.
