Church (C of S) [NAT]
OS 1:2500 map, 1973.

A fine example of a 'tin' church. It was built in 1903 by the United Free Church as a Mission Church to serve the needs of the workers from the newly built distillery and railway. Tomatin church came under the ownership of the Church to Scotland in 1929.
Information from Vivian Roden

According to Kinross 2010, the tin churches relate to railway expansion. They were available by catalogue and could be shipped by rail (or ship) to the nearest rail-head or port.
