St Dubhthachs Church or Clachan Duich Cemetery Featured 5 Dec 2016 Print

St Dubhthachs Church or Clachan Duich Cemetery

This ancient church and cemetery overlooks Loch Duich in between Dornie and Shiel Bridge, near A87 Morvich. In the distance to the left is the mountain Beinn Fhada or Ben Attow. To the right is SgA?rr Fhuaran. Known as Clachan Duich or St Dubhthachs church, the graveyard contains many MacRae graves and a memorial to the MacRae Clan Chief, Sir Colin George MacRae. A parish has been on this site as early as 750 AD. In 1050 the church was dedicated to St Dubhthach . The church was shelled by the same ships that destroyed the well known Eilean Donan Castle. The former parish church of Kintail may be in ruins ( reconstructed in 1855 ), but the burial ground surrounding it is still in use today. Morvich, Scotland, United Kingdom

Doorway to Cill Chriosd - Christs Church or Kilchrist Featured 5 Dec 2016 Print

Doorway to Cill Chriosd - Christs Church or Kilchrist

Cill Chriosd Christ's Church or Kilchrist is a ruined former parish church of Strath, on the Isle of Skye, Scotland. It was constructed around the 16th century, replacing an earlier Medieval church on the same location, and was used until 1840 when the Parish church was relocated to Broadford. It lies on the B8083 Broadford to Torrin and Elgol road. The ruins of the church lie at the top of a small mound, surrounded by the graveyard. It has been described by Miers as The long, low, rubble ruin of the post- Reformation parish church of Strath has roughly dressed quoins and jambs, and a balustraded burial enclosure added to the east gable in the early 18th century for the Mackinnons. Records from 1913 show that there were a pair of unusual gravemarkers in the graveyard - one dedicated to Chief Lachlan Mor and carrying obscure hieroglyphics, the other possibly dating from the pre-Christian era. However, both have since vanished. Most graves are connected to Clan MacKinnon,[5] and are from the 18th and 19th centuries. One memorial, in the inner wall of the burial enclosure, is for Charles Third, who was apparently born in Corry near Broadford as a MacKinnon but later died in Australia after emigrating. A worn medieval slab carved with an ornate cross is located in the south corner of the graveyard. The churchyard also has an amorial stone, as well as a possible fragment of the necking and lower arms of a crude cross, with one side plane and the other side bearing two animals carved into a relief on the lower portion. The graveyard also contains a slab of slate with a foliated cross, with one side preserved but the other side worn away
