We were staying in The Armoury across the road from the church so had the benefit of visiting early in the day and the early spring atmosphere was just sublime!

This church overlooks loch Shiel. Benches are strategically placed so you can armoede the view. Very photogenic building. Loved the scottish thistle and the scenes depicted in the window.

Didn't see many striking old churches during our short stay in the Highlands (most seemed to have been built late 1800's onwards), but this church the most striking I have EVER seen not just because it's a pretty little thing but the position it holds...More

I passed the church while walking to the Viaduct and Monument. It's peaceful and beautifully located. Glenfinnan Church is well worth a visit if you're passing by.

This is a beautiful church to visit. There is parking outside and it is only a short distance from the monument and viaduct. Worth stopping by if you are visiting the area.

Nestled on the hill overlooking Loch Shiel and the Glenfinnan monument this beautiful church is well worth a visit. Recently restored to a very high standard. Parking is available and a short walk gives access to the church and views beyond.

nice old church with plenty of parking outside, good views of Loch Shiel, easy walk back to the viaduct as well saves getting involved in the congested car park there.
