Ballachulish on Wikipedia.

(North) Ballachulish Parish Church in the late 1800's. A Telford church, built in 1829, but replaced by the Parish Church at Onich in 1911, when it became unsafe. The church was demolished but the graveyard which surrounded it still exists next to the hotel at Craigmhor (2022 Streetview). NN 0458 6110. Photo and text N. Argyll Extracts.

Old maps show a Free Church west of St. Munda, at NN 0808 5778. Map evidence suggests it was built between 1875 and 1898. Now demolished, its site (which remained un-developed in 2021), was first seen by Streetview in 2010.

St. Bride (Episcopal) in North Ballchulish, as seen by Streetview in 2009. It's dated here to 1875. NN 0519 6104. Link. Category C listed.

St. John, Episcopal, is dated in its Category C listing to 1842, with later additions. NN 0676 5849. Martin Briscoe. Link. Two additional views - 1, 2, both Dennis Harper (2013). The associated burial ground has also been given a category B listing.  The Old Episcopal Church, (also St. John) which preceded it stands nearby at NN 0679 5844. N. Argyll Extracts.

St. Mun (R.C.). NN 0818 5786. Martin Briscoe.

St. Munda (Ballachulish Parish Church, CoS). The original church was on Eilean Munda, an island in Loch Leven. NN 0820 5781. N. Argyll Extracts. Two additional views - 1, 2, both Dennis Harper (2013). It has evidently closed, as in 2024 it was being offered for sale. Category C listed, wherein it's dated to circa 1840. The Eilean Munda chapel survives, in ruins - see its story here, where there are photos. NN 0831 5911. More photos here, on Canmore.
