Kilmaluag, the former Kilmaluag Church of Scotland Mission at NG 431 743. It can be seen on Streetview here, and is described here as "a self-catering retreat house for ministers and church staff". Map evidence suggests that it was built between 1955 and 1966, © Martin Richter (2013). Howard Richter advises of an additional church, Kilmaluag Free Church Mission, which is shown on old maps at NG 4385 7400. It can be seen on Streetview here. Its present status is not apparent.

Roskhill, Free Presbyterian Church of Scotland. Another view. NG 278 450. Both © Dennis Harper (2013).

Sconser, Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses. NG 5215 3217. © Tim Flitcroft (2012). Howard Richter has advised of a former Church of Scotland building nearby, at NG 5167 3193. The oldest available map shows it as a "School (Boys and Girls)" in 1877, but by 1903 it was a Mission Room. Enough can be seen on a Streetview of 2011 to show that it is still extant, and an internet search shows that it is now in use as holiday accommodation. Link.
Skeabost Bridge, Snizort Free Church of Scotland (1847). NG 407 490. © Dennis Harper (2013). Link. A 2011 Streetview provides a useful alternative view. Grade C (S) listed. Howard Richter advises of a nearby demolished church, South Snizort Church of Scotland. It was still standing, and presumably active, when a map of 1964 was published. The site, visible in a 2011 Streetview, shows a modern house, though Howard suspects it stands rather further back from the road than the church. NG 4058 4908.
Staffin, Free Church of Scotland. From map evidence, it was built between 1878 and 1903. Two additional views - 1, 2. NG 493 670. Link. Kilmuir and Stenscholl Church of Scotland, a Parliamentary/Telford church of 1828. Two additional views - 1, 2. See also Kilmuir, above. NG 489 673. Link. Grade B listed. Free Church of Scotland (Continuing) (2005). Another view. NG 488 676. Link. All © Dennis Harper (2013). Free Presbyterian Church at NG 491 672. There was a preceding church building at NG 4922 6707, of which there are no visible remains. Shown on maps from 1903, it is not present on the 1955 edition. The site is seen here on Streetview. © Martin Richter (2013). Link.
