Ancient Cross, Sanda

This illustration was taken from "Argyll's Highlands" by Cuthbert Bede. It shows one of two ancient crosses found on Sanda Island. Both crosses are in the tiny burial ground near the ruins of St Ninian's Chapel. The inscriptions have been eroded by the elements and cannot be read, but one of them is thought to mark the remains of the holy man Senchanns and his fourteen followers. The chapel dates from the Middle Ages. Its walls measure only 10.2 metres from east to west and 6.3 metres from north to south
