Winter scene near Inverness

This is a winter scene at Daviot near Inverness. The Church of Daviot was granted a charter in the 13th century. There have been at least two previous churches but the present building dates from 1826. The contractors were Macphail and Macfarlane and the specifications were prepared by Alexander Grant who was the factor to The Mackintosh, the local land owner and chief of the Clan Mackintosh.

The church was known to drovers for many years as the 'kirk of the golden cockerel' because of a distinctive weather vane. Standing where it does, the church is now a familiar landmark on the A9 road.
