Church depicted as roofed on OS 1st ed. map of Inverness-shire (Mainland sheet 78, 1876).

Information from RCAHMS (KM) 26 October 1995.

NG 873 059 On the E shore of Barrisdale bay, Loch Hourn is the roofless shell of a building, whose side walls and gables still stand to their original height. Named Quoad Sacra church according to the First Edition OS Map where it was shown as roofed, it measures 13.0m N-S by 3.8m transversly within mortared walls of semi-dressed stone, plastered on the inner face, 0.7m thick, sidewalls 2.5m and gables about 4m high.

Lying on the ground in the interior are the cast-iron side frames of combined seat and desk units, possibly indicating that the structure may have been used as a school at some time.
