Insh Church

on .

In the mid 19th century some of the congregation left their parish church in Kincraig, to hold their own services in the open air in Insh village. A reader called Donald Cattanach walked every Sunday from Glen Banchor in Newtonmore to lead their worship in the village. A local woman wove a plaid to protect the reader and his bible from the weather and this plaid is kept in Kingussie Folk Museum. 

Eventually, the landowner built them a small church with a tin roof, known locally as the 'Mission Church'. The tin roof has been replaced with tiles, a ship’s bell has been installed in the roof, a mosaic window made by school children is in the wall facing the road, and the village war memorial was placed within the church grounds.  

A service is held in Insh Village Church at 6pm on the third Sunday of the month
