The Parish of Moy, Dalarossie & Tomatin Submission to Inverness Presbytery put forward arguments for keeping Moy Church as a Necessary Building. Mr Colin Munro of Messrs Thomas Munro & Col, Architects carried out a building survey in 1993, and advised that the rafters of the church are very old and probably date to 1680-1700, pre-dating the present church which was built in 1765. The timber is adzed and each rafter is numbered in Roman numerals.
