Lochcarron church, a deconsecrated church in private hands being restored to former glory.
Any donations for help would be so greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

A home and a space

We have a very big project ahead of us, as the church does need extensive repairs and services installed, but we intend to convert the two downstairs rooms into a kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. The main room of the church we want to preserve as much as possible. We both work in the arts, so this will be an ideal creative space for both of us, and we thought perhaps in the future (well into the future) we may hold events there. But on the whole, we mostly want to preserve the church as is as much as possible and install renewable, eco-friendly services.

Our purchase of the church is only the footprint of the church itself. The graveyard will remain in the possession of the council for maintenance. We were thinking of having an open house after the sale is finished for anyone to come have a tour of the building as it is now, and we can tell them about our plans for the future of the church


We are renovating this church in the Highlands of Scotland.

As conservationists, we are hoping to run the church with sustainable energy.
