Artist's Description

This picture is of the old storehouse which is now part of the St John’s Church in Ballachulish.

For many years, some say from the Revolution until 1810, the congregation of the Ballachulish area had no settled incumbent and was served by itinerant Gaelic priests, such as the Reverend Allan Cameron who, with Bishop Forbes, visited the village in 1770.

The Bishop mentions in his journal that he preached to large gatherings from the doorway of a small storehouse which still stands in the present burial ground.

In the early years of the 19th century, the storehouse was converted into a Church, the vestry of which still stands near to today’s St.John’s.

The village of Ballachulish ( from the Gaelic Baile Chaolais ) in Lochaber, Highland, Scotland, is centred around former slate quarries. The name Ballachulish was more correctly applied to the area now called North Ballachulish, to the north of Loch Leven, but was usurped for the quarry villages at East Laroch and West Laroch, either side of the River Laroch, which were actually within Glencoe and South Ballachulish respectively.
