Nairn Free Church site on a prominent in the heart of Nairn. The church has a simple composition, with lancets and buttresses along the flanking walls. There is a delightful corner stair tower that has steeply pitched roof and broad eaves.
The church was designed by Falkirk architect, James Strang in 1908.
The maritime climate has given rise to stone erosion, particularly to the North gable that faces the North Sea. MAAC Studio were commissioned to prepare a conservation report and detailed schedule of repairs for the church.
Works will commence in August 2022, with repointing, indenting of replacement stone and the installation of new gutters that are better able to cope with the high volume of rainwater discharging from the roof.
