The Church Lochailort Church

Lochailort Church appears in many scenes of the movie. It is sandwiched between the A830 and the Fort William to Mallaig railway line.

Shortly after passing Lochailort, heading along the A830 towards Mallaig, the church can be seen on the right of the road. There is a large car park on the left of the road and a gate on the other side of the road opening onto a path up to the church. The church is currently disused and boarded up.

The scenes with a red telephone box with the church in the background were filmed on the small dead end road on the other side of the railway line. There is a dank smelly tunnel which goes under the railway to a track which leads up to the road. Alternatively take the right turning just before you reach the church (if coming from Lochailort direction).
