J-land photoshoot #131

Noticed I did not participate in editions 129 and 130, but I can submit something in Krissy's photoshoot, subject Sacred. One very old chapel in the Ness area of Lewis, dedicated to St Moluag, an acolyte of St Columba. This firebrand priest is credited with bringing Christianity to Scotland. A very readable account is given by Nigel Tarrant, who takes a little bit of poetic license. Anyway, here is the pic of the chapel, which I took on 27 April 2007.

  2. What a wonderful shot Guido!  I absolutely love this.  Such a humble chapel.  I have never heard of St. Moluag.  But I will have to look him up.  Thanks for showing us this wonderful chapel, and for giving us this information!

    You should totally win.  That church is beautiful and ancient and regal, and the perspective of the walkway/fence is amazing.

    be well,
