It's well worth paying a brief visit to this quaint church that is in excellent condition and has a warm welcoming character. It's several centuries old and has quite strong connections to the Jacobite Rebellion.

Fascinating church with very welcoming volunteers. Much of the decor is late Victorian or modern but there is no entry charge although donations are welcome.

Great building, interesting features but also very clean and linear style ... it does worth a visit indeed!.. just doubting for all the sort of "caos" and new installations (e.g. wooden boxes behind the choir space) which do not make any sense ...
