Croe Church, Clachan Duich

The ruined church pictured in this early Valentine's postcard, entitled "Croe Church, Loch Duich", is more commonly referred to as Clachan Duich. It is the ancient church and burial ground of the MacRaes of Kintail.

Situated close to the head of Loch Duich, near the River Croe, Clachan uich has been in existence since at least 1050 and probably was in use much earlier. It is dedicated to St Duthac, the 11th century Bishop of Ross. The ruins of the old church are surrounded by marked and unmarked graves, many of them no doubt MacRaes as the name is still very common in the area.

Overlooking the church and cemetery is the World War I Clan MacRae memorial, which was unveiled on 15 July 1922.
