Fernish Church of Scotland, 1892 Simple, still gas lit, rubble and slated gothic church, hidden in trees above the road. It replaced one of 1780, whose predecessor was the medieval parish church of Killintag (Cill Leuntaig), remnants of which are still evident on the sloping burial ground at Mungasdale. Here, in the irregular, rubble-walled enclosure, stands the unpopular Christina Stewart's cenotaph (built to imitate a mausoleum), c.1830, a gothic landmark of tooled and polished ashlar. Mungasdale House, late 18th century Tacksman's house, remodelled c.1825 when the settlement was cleared to make way for a sheep farm.
