For up-to-date information on Church news and forthcoming events, see the News page on this website, and our Facebook page: Saint Ninians Glen Urquhart.
We usually have coffee after the Sunday service, to give us a chance to have a friendly chat, and all visitors are most welcome too.
Following the retirement of our priest, Rev Martin Roff, services will be taken by visiting clergy or occasionally by our Eucharistic ministers until a new priest is appointed.
The Church is situated in a scenic location on the shore of Loch Meiklie in Glen Urquhart, one of the loveliest glens in the Highlands. It is on the A831, about five miles west of Drumnadrochit and seven miles east of Cannich.
Our beautiful little church was built in the 19th. century, but it has ramp access and a loop system, and there is an off-road car park. The door is always open for you to come in and view the Church, or spend a little time in quiet prayer and contemplation.
An extensive programme of building restoration work has just been completed.
You can also enjoy a stroll in the Church grounds; there are benches and a picnic table on the paths by the loch.
We welcome visitors from all Christian denominations to share with us in all our services and in Holy Communion. If browsing these pages encourages you to visit us, we shall be delighted to meet you. Coffee is served in our coffee room following the 11.00am Sung Eucharist each Sunday.
We are glad that you are visiting our website. The following pages give a flavour of how we go about our declared purpose of Knowing God and Growing Faith.
