Jura Parish Church [NAT]

OS (GIS) MasterMap, March 2010.

Built 1776, aisle added 1842.

G Hay 1957.

This church was built in about 1777 to replace an earlier one situated a short distance away at Keils (NR56NW 1.00). It is a plain gable-ended building of oblong plan lit by a series of semicircular-headed windows in the side-walls. The masonry is of harled rubble and the roof is slated. The two-storeyed wing on the NW side of the church was erected by Colin Campbell of Jura in 1842, when the interior was also remodelled. A further renovation was carried out in 1922, a new entrance being formed at the SW end of the building and the interior again recast. (New Statistical Account 1845; Youngson 1977).

RCAHMS 1984, visited August 1974.
