Syre Church, Strathnaver, Sutherland

This corrugated Iron structure was built in 1891 as a 'mission station' by the Free Church of Scotland, whose minister, the Rev Alexander Sutherland, and his congregation at Altnaharra, undertook the project. It served the small community of shepherds, gamekeepers and gillies in the surrounding estates. Today the church at Syre and Altnaharra are linked with the Church of Scotland at Bettyhill.
