Ensay Endeavours

The Islands Book Trust can be trusted to arrange visits of a compelling nature. On Saturday 19 July you are invited to join members on a relatively short journey into the Sound of Harris to see more of Ensay, including its now deserted House (above). Among the island's many aspects are the separate endeavours by Jessie Scott and John David, in the early- and mid-20th Century, to restore Christ Church Chapel (below). Members of the Harris congregation of the Scottish Episcopalian Church make an annual pilgrimage to hold a service in the building. Read more in this Stornoway Gazette item and consider taking advantage of having a stimulating day out.
