Old church, near Erchless
Old church, near Erchless
This building is next to the Cnoc Hotel, near Erchless Castle.
I'm not sure when it was in use, or what denomination it was. It is marked on the 1st Edition OS 6 Inch map (1873) as a "Chapel of Ease", and on the 2nd Edition (1903) as "Church". There is an old manse nearby: NH4040 : Former manse, Erchless
It now has several of the windows bricked up, and there was some bales stacked at the back.

In March 2012, planning permission was granted for converting the church into a dwelling.
