We are progressing with plans to restore the Free Presbyterian church at Eriboll and make it available to the community once more for worship and other appropriate gatherings.

The church has long been a focal point for Eriboll and its surrounding villages but has, over recent years, fallen into disrepair.

Wildland is pleased to have this opportunity which works for both us and the community we are part of.

The photographs below show what Eriboll church looked like in days gone by, our drawings show our plans for its restoration.

Restoring Eriboll church isn’t a one-off exercise though, in partnership with Scottish National Heritage we have also funded the addition of a viewing platform to the Castle Varrich ruins for the enjoyment of tourists and local people alike (you can read more about this project here), taken steps to ensure that the Post Office and village store in Tongue remains open, and are now deep into a project to restore the old Lundies manse in Tongue as a new boutique hotel. When Lundies opens it will of course provide new accommodation for tourists visiting the area, as well as creating new opportunities for employment.
