The church of the visitation is located in the village of Taynuilt in Argyll.

We are a small but vibrant parish and you are welcome to join us in the celebration of mass and for private prayer.

Churches Opening

We were given some hope that our churches may open for Easter. Some have said that we may open for the whole of Holy Week, but I think that this may not be the case since we don’t celebrate Passover which was the other feast that was mentioned by the First Minister.
Nevertheless, let’s be hopeful and wait and see.

Fr Sidney Macewen

Many thanks for all who replied to the request for a spare copy of Fr Sidney Macewen’s ‘Life on the High Cs’. Success! We now have a copy from a generous donor.


Taynuilt – we raised £25.00 from Standing Orders.
Our finances are very fragile and the further closure of churches is going to make our viability quite precarious. If, but only if you can help, it would be greatly appreciated.
We bank with the Coop Bank, Sort Code – 83 91 25 account number 65628113.
