NR2975 : Ruined chapel on Nave Island

taken 6 years ago, 3 km from Ardnave, Argyll And Bute, Great Britain

Ruined chapel on Nave Island
Ruined chapel on Nave Island
The remains of a chapel on the uninhabited Nave Island off the north coast of Islay as seen from Ardnave Point. The red brick chimney sticking up from the ruin was (not surprisingly) a later addition from when the ruin was used as a site for kelp burning.
No kelp's been burnt here for many a year though, and the little uninhabited island of c.37 acres is now a nature reserve. The highest point on the island, 34m (112ft) is marked by a trig point (at NR2923776093) which can just be made out as a little pimple top right of the image.
