Archaeological notes on ancient chapels, 24 May 1870

Identifier: Coll-97/CW150/81

Scope and Contents

Archaeological notes on ancient chapels written at Keallun [Ceallan/Kallin, Griomasaigh/Grimsay] including that there is a fine view from from it and that this must be the chapel to which Martin Martin refers as there is no chapel on Rona [RĂ²naigh/Ronay]. Carmichael states that as Martin Martin only spoke of one chapel, the chapel and burying ground pointed out cannot have been in existence two hundred years before when Martin was writing. He refers to it as the Lowlanders Chapel and states that it was connected to Holy Trinity Cairinish [Cairinis/Carinish, Uibhist a Tuath/North Uist] 'of which tradition says Amie MacRuary was super[intendent] and which ancient records say she made over to the monks of Inchaffary' [Innis Aifrinn/Inchaffray, Siorramachd Pheairt/Perthshire].
