A wee church on Skye

While there was a small gravel patch for folks to park on, I still am not sure if this church was an active one or just another beautiful site for tourists to traipse about; still trying to find out it’s name and history.

But whatever the story,  it has one fantastic view.  Note: This church is the one mentioned in the prior post about Skye here

Update: Thanks to the power of the folks at VisitScotland.com and social media this wee church has a name and history.  The St. Columba Church (named after an Irish missionary who landed here in 585 AD to preach the Christian faith) was built in 1901 facing the Sound of Sleat.  Later it became the Talla Duisdale missionary church which closed it’s doors in the 1970’s.  In 2017 the building was converted to a performance venue.  The name, Talla Duisdale means ‘misty glen’.
