Going to Church ... Cave?

When South Rona was fully inhabited there was a demand by congregations for places of worship. Until the 1930s there were services in the Church Cave where the stone pews were certainly hard-wearing. An account of a visit is towards the end of a finely-illustrated account of a journey in walkhighlands and the photograph here was taken by Marc Calhoun, with his wife, Shawna, anticipating, perhaps, a sermon! Marc has visited the island some five times and his blog focuses on many of its features.
