Rodel Church

This photograph was taken by Scottish photographer George Washington Wilson (1823-93) and was used to illustrate talks he gave on Highland history. The following description is taken from Washington Wilson's own lecture notes.

The Hebrides are not particularly rich in ecclesiastical remains, and the church at Rodel is the only pre-reformation church which still remains entire. The building is as curious as its history is obscure; the west front being distinguished by some extraordinary sculptures.
