Church of Scotland, Lochcarron

A village in Wester Ross, Lochcarron lies on the natural harbour of Slumbay on the northern shore of Loch Carron, 2 miles (3 km) northeast of its mouth. Formerly a crofting and fishing community laid out at the beginning of the 19th century, it was originally called Janetown in honour of the wife of John Mackenzie of Applecross. The village grew in the 1960s in association with the oil-rig yard at Kishorn. It is today a tourist resort with a 9-hole golf course.
