in 1846
A Free Church congregation in Strontian, Ardnamurchan, launched their floating church.

The local laird refused them permission to build a church on his land, so they "crowdfunded" £1,400 to get a Clyde shipbuilder to make a floating church. The church was moored in Loch Sunart & was 80ft long & 24ft wide. It could hold a congregation of 400.
