St Mary's Chapel

St Mary's Chapel, Crosskirk - watercolour, 13 x 18 cm

This little chapel was built in the 12th Century, and is one of the oldest in the area. It seems a bit isolated now and I don't know why it was built here. Previous burial mounds  have been found, as well as a Pictish symbol stone, so maybe the site had some special significance.
