Welcome to the home of Croick Church on the
Each year we have a short Pilgrimage Walk that takes place from Amat up the Strath to the church prior to the service.
This year the Pilgrimage Walk is Sunday 10th August. The Pilgrimage starts at 2.00pm from the Amat junction and follows the road up to the church and there will be opportunities for prayer and reflection during the journey. All are then welcome to share in the Communion Service at 3.00pm.
About Croick Church and its history.
CROICK CHURCH lies some 10 miles up STRATHCARRON to the
west of the village of ARDGAY in the county of SUTHERLAND. It was built in 1827 on
land donated by the Rosses of Balnagown and to the design of Thomas Telford, and formed
part of a church extension programme initiated and financed by the Westminster Parliament.
Previously there had been a Preaching Station in its locality and there are the
remains of a Pictish broch within its glebe.
The Church and its minister figured prominently in the
Clearance of Glencalvie in 1845, a tragic event that is recorded in messages scratched on
its east window. But today they play a happier role in continuing to provide a
Christian witness in this remote Highland strath.
To those able to travel to it we extend a warm welcome to
join with us at the service held in the Church during the summer months. The Church
itself is open throughout the year and annually attracts between two and three thousand
