I rang the 4 at Fort William in 1975.
At that time the bells were in reasonable going order.
We had to cut 4 rope holes in the plastic corrugated roof beneath the
frame, oil and rope up. Water ingress was gross, hence the "roof" under
the frame so I imagine they must have got into a sorry state by now.
PNBR details look about right. I probably have a recording of them
ringing.... Somewhere!

Dove claims the unringable four are in St Andrew's, which is 
the dedication of the Episcopal church there. The Catholic 
church is dedicated to St Mary. From memory, there are four 
churches in Fort William with towers that look substantial 
enough to house a light four, and it's possible that one of 
the others may be dedicated to St Andrew too.
