Oransay Priory

 Oransay Priory was founded around 1350 as an Augustine monastary but was reported as being in ruins by 1623. The current owners of Oransay have done much to improve the island and this includes moving the superb collection of carved mediavel grave stones in to a recently roofed area of the priory to protect them from the elements. 






OK, not part of the priory proper, but I like this shot of the nearby walls with the three baby wrens!
Again, not  a carving but a fascinating natural detail of one of the stones in the priory wall.
