Thanks for the replies!

The curious thing is, nothing suggests that the pair were, in fact, Catholic. Both their parents' marriages were according to the Established Church of Scotland. Additionally, after they emigrated to the USA with their young family in the 1920s, they are listed as "Presbyterian."

The usual residence of both groom and bride is given simply as, "Beauly, Parish of Kilmorack." The minister is John Cameron, Roman Catholic Clergyman.

Hmm, how strange to be Presbyterian or Church of Scotland or other yet marrying in a Catholic Chapel/Church as I believe they may have needed to take 'Rites' & get permission to marry unless they had already gone through that process for whatever reason?

Unlike the other way around where no process was/is necessary?

Perhaps one side of the family was Catholic, the pressure was on, so they decided to keep the peace by marrying in a Catholic Church. Same thing happens today sometimes doesn't it?  ;)

There is also St Mary's, Eskadale, a short distance from Beauly, that was referred to as a chapel. It was built in 1826/7.

There is a private cemetery for the Lovats to the west of the chapel

https://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/  has some records linked to St Mary's Eskadale that date back to 1793 while those for St Mary's Beauly appear to start around 1850.

http://www.stmarysbeauly.org  has headings for Beauly, Eskadale etc.
For St. Marys, Eskadale the history states
"...It is hard to believe that so large a Roman Catholic chapel was built as far back as 1827, only 34 years after the passing of the Catholic Relief Act. Built by The Chief of the Clan Fraser, the 14th Lord Lovat..."   

For St Marys Beauly it states
 "...The Catholic Directory entries of 1845 and 1846 record that 'Beauly is served from Inverness', i.e. a priest would travel over from Inverness to offer Mass in Beauly.  Before the present church was built there was a chapel recorded from  1843 onwards, which was  in Croyard Road opposite  the Church of Scotland.  This chapel is now gone..."
