This unassuming white-harled rural building, which may be mistaken for a line of cottages, is the oldest building erected after the Reformation for Roman Catholic worship in Scotland. Built (in 1755) just nine years after Culloden, at a time when Catholicsa were regarded with suspicion if not direct hostility, this low building in the Gordon lands of Enzie, was originally even more inconspicuous, having a thatched roof and no glazed windows. The ball finial on the W gable was added in 1779 by priest George Matheson, who also glazed the windows and slated the roof. The interior is simple but pleasing. I Shepherd 1986.
