Church Overview

The church of St Peter & St Boniface is housed in the former Mackerchar Hall, a volunteeer drill hall designed by John Robertson, 1881. Built of the local pink sandstone, it is Italianate in style, with round-headed windows in threes for the hall and a Venetian window in the first floor of the two-storey entrance wing. The interior has a simple dignity with the altar raised above the drill hall floor. St Peter & St Boniface is next to the 14th century ruins of Fortrose Cathedral, dedicated to St Peter. St Boniface founded the first cathedral in Ross at Rosemarkie in the 7th century.
