Duncan Macpherson at Applecross Old Parish Church

Saint Maelrubha founded a Celtic Christian church on the west coast of the Applecross Peninsula in 673AD. It lasted 2 centuries, but only fragments of cross-slabs remain. The Old Parish church pictured, built in 1817, has been disused for many years, and indeed was no longer used for worship when the photographer Duncan Macpherson visited, which he did on several occasions. Sometimes he came by boat, and sometimes by the high road over the Bealach na Ba (Pass of the Cattle) from Lochcarron. Unusually, Duncan Macpherson has himself been captured on film while lining up a photograph in the graveyard of the church. He was accompanied regularly by family or friends on his trips from Kyle of Lochalsh
