St Runius Church Marown

This was once the Parish church and was situated in about the centre of the Parish. The original building was from approximately 1200 AD and was enlarged in 1754 AD.

Three bishops are possibly buried in the graveyard here; Lonnan, Connaghan, and Runius.

This quaint little Church has no mains electricity and relies on candlelight.

A lovely walk around Langness Peninsula today and I came across this inscribed rock with the words, ALL – 1853 – LOST – PROVIDER.

With a little bit of research I found that the Provider was a Schooner bound from Liverpool to Glasgow in 1853 with a cargo of salt – The Master and 3 crew were all lost and the Schooner wrecked just beyond these rocks at Langness.
