Parish of North West Lochaber

Church of Scotland


The Parish of North West Lochaber is unique within the Church of Scotland as it consists of communities accessible by road and some only accessible by sea.


With ten communities, each with their own unique characteristics, the traditional models of Parish Ministry and so new models of reaching out with the good news of Jesus Christ are always being explored.


The Parish has a very interesting and varied history, which you can read about in the history of the Parish section of this site.


The Road to the Isles and the Rough Bounds are names synonymous with the area covered by the Parish.

The vision of the Church of Scotland is to be a church which inspires the people of Scotland and beyond with the Good News of Jesus Christ through enthusiastic, worshipping, witnessing, nurturing and serving communities.
