Owner description: Nigg Old Church, in the Highlands of Scotland, is a fine example of a Scottish parish church and - since it houses a magnificent Pictish monument of the late eighth century, carved with Pictish symbols and Christian imagery - it is likely that it stands on what has been a place of Christian worship for at least 1200 years. It has, to this day, an atmosphere of peace and tranquillity. The church is open daily from 10am to 5pm by a wonderful group of volunteers from 1 April to 31 October. Nigg Old Church is also a wonderful venue for weddings for up to 140 guests.

“An unexpected treasure”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

We knew that there was an interesting piece of Pictish art at Nigg Old Church before we took the wonderful tiny ferry from Cromarty, but were quite unprepared for the quality of the stone's carving or the superb presentation or the information on Scotland's social and religious history that can be found inside the church. The stone has recently been magnificently restored and re-erected in a striking modern setting with excellent lighting and a wealth of information. In all these respects it surpasses even the stone at Rosemarkie. Even without the stone, the old church would be an attractive place to visit. With it, it was one of the highlights of our holiday. I wish I could give it more than 5 stars!
