Known locally as 'The Red Kirk' because the local Machrie sandstone of its construction is of a warm, red hue, this church was built in 1889 to a design by J J Burnet. The tower contains a single bell. Set into the west wall of the tower is a carved stone graveslab, possibly of a 13th-century abbot taken from Clauchen graveyard. The north gable has a double window in Norman style with Celtic motifs. A small wooden carving of St Molios, who lived as a hermit on Holy Island, is set into a bench end on the south side of the sanctuary.
