Inveraray, Argyll & Bute

Inverary on Wikipedia.

Inverary was laid out as a model village by the Duke of Argyll.

All Saints (Episcopal, 1885) on The Avenue. The church is open daily March - October. Peter Morgan. It has a separate Bell Tower, which was built as a war memorial between 1923 and 1931. Martin Briscoe. Three further views of the church - 1, 2, 3, and another of the tower. Before the ten bells were hung in the tower, they were housed in a wooden bell house. All Dennis Harper (2019). Link1. Link2.

Free Church at Newtown (also at one-time a Masonic Hall). NN 094 081. Martin Briscoe.

Glenaray and Inverary Parish Church (1792), Martin Briscoe. Jim Napier advises that this church was originally built as two churches, back to back. What is now the church hall was originally the Gaelic-speaking church. The current church was originally the Lowland (English-speaking) church. Another view. The other "half" of the church appears to differ only in having a bell rather than a clock. Another view showing both churches from the side. All Dennis Harper (2019). According to this link, the church used to have a spire rising from the centre of the building, which was demolished in 1941. A small image is available here.

The former St. Malieu Hall at Newtown. The plaque reads "Saint Malieu Hall. Built in 1836 for the secession congregation of the United Associate Synod. In 1847 joined to form the United Presbyterian Church. Closed for worship in 1898 to become a Ceilidh Place. House conversion began in 1998". Martin Briscoe.
