Chapels of the Rough Bounds

The lands lying between Loch Hourn and Loch Shiel on the west coast of Inverness-shire were affected little by the Scottish Reformation. For over two centuries a handful of missionaries and "heather-priests" toiled to keep Catholicism alive in the area.

With the passing of the Scottish Relief Bill in 1793 priests no longer needed to work in secret and permanent places of worship appeared. These ranged from modest chapels, some of which now stand as monuments to congregations which have moved elsewhere, to grander buildings in Arisaig and Glenfinnan.

This book draws on a wide range of sources to provide a history of all the known Catholic chapels and churches in the Rough Bounds as well as a wealth of detail about the lives of many priests who have served the district in the last three centuries.
