Lunna Kirk
Lunna Kirk
This little white kirk at Lunna, dedicated to St Margaret, is the oldest church on Shetland still in regular use, and is known as "The ancient kirk of Lunna" - though it actually only dates from 1753, which is not that ancient for a church, though it stands in the place of far older buildings.
This church was built by the fourth Hunter of Lunna - and the Hunter family mausoleum existed here before this building. It measures 34' x 17' and is mostly constructed of massive volcanic whinstone blocks from the locality with walls up to 3' thick.
