12.09.2004 – Day 1: St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church


St. Andrews Episcopal Church


The first Episcopal church building was erected on this site in 1817.  It was known as the Rosse Chapel, after the Countess of Rosse who was largely responsible for its being built. By 1876 it was in a bad state of repair and the future looked blank until George Baynton Davey had the building demolished and replaced, very largely at his own expense, by the present St Andrew’s.  It is built of Abriachan granite, with a roof of Cumberland slate, and was designed by Dr Alexander Ross, of Inverness.  The church was consecrated on 9 Sept 1880.  Known as the “Queen of Highland Churches” it is a Category A listed building.


Die erste hier errichtete Kirche stammte aus dem Jahr 1817 und war als Rosse Chapel bekannt. Die Kapelle verdankte ihren Namen ihrer Geldgeberin der Duchess of Rosse.
Bereits knappe siebzig Jahre später (1876) war das Gebäude in einem dermaßen schlechten Zustand, dass es abgerissen werden musste und durch die heutige Kirche ersetzt wurde.
Die St. Andrews Episcopal Church besteht aus Granit und geht auf Entwürfe von Dr. Alexander Ross zurück.
Sie wurde am 09. September als “Queen of the Highland Churches” geweiht.
