Gaelic Chapel - Cromarty, Ross-shire

This church was built to serve an influx of Gaelic-speaking workers into the mainly English-speaking town in the 18th century.

It fell into disrepair in the mid 20th century and the roof fell in during the 1960s. A picture of it before this can be seen on the Cromarty Image Library.

What a stark contrast from one vision to another even if the other photo is in black and white, it has still a sense of purpose even the gravestones show well in the morning light. There's a strength along the walls length that blends into the tower's build, and I noticed that there are no corners as such now that architect had a purpose that was well and truly fullfilled.
