Insh Village Church

An unusual small church in the hamlet of Insh in Badenoch, Insh Village Church was established following the Disruption of 1843 when members of Insh Parish Church left the form a Free Church. At first they worshipped in the open air but eventually the local land owner built them a small church with a tin roof in the style of a cottage. This is known locally as the Mission Church. The tin roof was replaced with tiles and a ship’s bell is installed in a simple bellcote on the west gable. There is a mosaic window made by school children in the wall facing the road, and the village war memorial is located within the grounds. The church is still used for a monthly service, although the building is being developed as a place of prayer and pilgrimage.
