Macrae graveyard overlooking Loch Duich

Clachan Duich is the ancient church and burial ground of the MacRaes of Kintail. Situated close to the head of Loch Duich, Clachan Duich has been in existence since at least 1050 and probably was in use much earlier. It is dedicated to St Duthac, the 11th century Bishop of Ross. The ruins of the old church are surrounded by marked and unmarked graves, many of them no doubt MacRaes as the name is still very common in the area. Overlooking the church and cemetery is the World War I Clan MacRae memorial, which was unveiled on July 15th, 1922.

In the background are the hills above Ratagan, and on the extreme left of the photograph, the vehicles and equipment may be associated with the construction of a causeway across the mouth of the river Croe.
