Sketches at Eilean Mor, Knapdale

Eilean Mòr is the largest of a group of islands in the Sound of Jura. It is also sometimes known as Cormac's Island after St Cormac, an Irish monk who died in 664 AD and who is buried on the island. There is a small, ruined chapel on the island. It dates from the late 12th to the early 13th century and is aligned in an east-west direction. The partly medieval building encloses another, earlier building.
