Tombstone of an Ecclesiastic at Eilean Mor

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.

This illustration shows a fragment of a tombstone of an ecclesiastic. Some consider this effigy to be the image of St Cormac.

This illustration was taken from 'Archaeological Sketches in Scotland: Knapdale and Gigha', by Captain T P White (1875)
