We are a small, friendly Orthodox community located on the north-eastern edge of the Ardnamurchan Peninsula at the end of the River Shiel, a beautiful land associated with many saints and the beginnings of Christianity in Scotland.

Visit of Fr John

The Community was very blessed in August as Father John Maitland Moir from Edinburgh, came to stay for a week’s rest after the Feast of the Dormition Liturgy which we attended in Edinburgh. He may be a little frail but he kept us on our toes with daily Matins and Vespers even after the four hour journey from the capital to home. The Divine Liturgy was celebrated on Saint Florus and Laurus’ day and was attended by a clutch of faithful worshippers.

It is some four years since the Liturgy had been celebrated here and we are indebted to Fr. John for his loving care and attention to us. He married Deacon Christopher and Matushka Elizabeth in the old Edinburgh Chapel nearly 17 years ago and we have maintained very close contact with him ever since.

We look forward to seeing him here again soon.
