Highland Folk Museum - 26

It is now time for Divine Service and we shall be attending Leanach Mission Church.

Leanach Church was erected as a 'Mission Hall' in partnership between the Church of Scotland and the Free Church to fulfil a community need for a place of worship on land that once formed part of Culloden Battlefield. The church became redundant in the 1980s, and so the Museum acquired it.

You may be interested to know that I live less than 2 miles away from where the church was originally located.

In the year 1900, Spiers & Co. of Glasgow supplied the timber and corrugated iron clad 'kit' for the building, at a price of just under £200. In 2008, my house cost over 1,000 times as much!
