Church Overview

This little white-harled church stands on a knoll overlooking the harbour of Mallaig and with views to the Small Isles. It was built in 1903 to the designs of J G Falconer. It is a rectangular church with a small chancel to the south and a bellcote on the north gable. The lancet windows are separated by buttresses. There is one stained glass window, depicting Christ walking on the water, by Abbot & Co. The Manse is about half a mile from the church giving stunning views across the Sound of Sleat and the Small Isles. Mallaig and Arisaig became a united congregation in March 2008.

St Columba’s Parish Church is a Destination Hub on the St Columba Pilgrim Journey.
