Thurso: St. Peter and the Holy Rood

The Church was built in 1884 to a design by Alexander Ross of Inverness (who was responsible for so many other churches in the Diocese). It was opened for worship one year later. The chancel was not added until 1905. A feature of the Church is the ornately carved reredos behind the High Altar which is believed to be of German origin.
