Who we are

Glenaray and Inveraray Parish Church

The Church is situated at the highest point of the town and sits in the middle of the A83 trunk road to the Kintyre Peninsula and traffic flows around it as a roundabout.

You certainly can't miss it, but unfortunately the slender spire was removed in November 1941 when lots of heavy vehicles were involved in the combined training activities in the area during WW2. It was deemed unsafe and taken down stone by stone, each one numbered for later re- erection and the stones were stored in the local quarry, never to be seen again.

Without it's steeple, unfortunately, it is assumed by many visitors as being the town hall and not the splendid grade 'A' listed building which it truly is.

The Church is open to visitors during the summer months and is visited by hundreds of folks from all corners of the world who are very impressed when they walk inside this lovely building, where you can sit in quietness or look around it’s beautiful furnishings which were made by local craftsmen. The Church is at the start of the Pilgim’s Journey route from Inveraray to Campbeltown.

Glenaray and Inveraray History

The Church was designed by Robert Mylne, one of the great Scottish 18th century architects. Built between 1795 and 1802 on the highest piece of ground and traffic has always been meant to flow around it. Built to house two congregations - the English or Lowland and the Gaelic or Highland a solid wall separated the two. Externally the two ends are identical. In each gable is a circular opening - a feature which Mylne used in many of the buildings at Inveraray and elsewhere. In one is the Church Clock and in the other the Church Bell. The porticoes now railed in, originally gave access to the galleries. Much of the stone for the building came from Arran but there is a persistent story that some was quarried at Creag nan Caorach (the Craigs is a headland south of the town). If true, it confirms a 16th century prophecy that Inveraray would never be a town worth the name, till the bells rang on Creag nan Caorach. In 1957 the Gaelic End was converted into a Church Hall and its gallery was enclosed to form the Paul Fraser Memorial Chapel; Rev Doctor Paul Fraser author of the statistical Accounts of 1793, was Minister here when the Church was built. The dividing wall was pierced by a door. Originally a tall slender spire rose from the centre of the church. Said to be unsafe, it was demolished in 1941. Lacking the spire, the Church is now squat and unimpressive, though still the centre of the town.
