Aberfeldy, the former
Congregational Church of 1877, on The Square. The congregation dates from 1790, and
they moved into a newly-built church on Chapel Street in 1820, which
they used until 1878. The present church building was gifted to the town
in the 1987, and is now known as The Locus Centre (link).
