Welcome to the web site of the Church of Scotland Presbytery of Lochaber.
We are part of the Church of Scotland
We are a very small Presbytery of only eight charges based in Lochaber in the West Highlands of Scotland. Our Presbytery is centred around Fort William, which is dominated by Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the British Isles. Tourism is the main activity in our area with skiing in winter, walking and cycling all year round.
"The role of presbytery in the national church is to:
· Encourage worship, ministry and mission in the presbytery area;
· Strengthen and support local congregations and their ministries;
· Provide oversight of congregations, ministers and elders.”
Report of the Panel on Review and Reform to the 2010 General Assembly.
As part of the visit to Lochaber Presbytery by the Moderator the Rt. Rev Dr Angus Morrison and Mrs Morrison a ceilidh was held in Invergarry Hall. A great night was had by all.

Three members of St Munda's Church recently took part in Christian Aid's
70 Munros Challenge. As this is the 70th anniversary of Christian Aid, supporters were asked to be sponsored to climb one of seventy Munro mountains.
The intrepid team decided to climb Buachaille Etive Mor in Glencoe.
The team were sent off by the Rev Ann Winning and were sponsored by members of St Munda's and Duror churches as well as family and friends. Well done to all concerned and thanks to all the sponsors!
Rural ministry offers challenges and joys. In the video above Rev Donald McCorkindale and Rev Mairi Perkins
discuss some of their experiences of ministering in a rural setting.
