Old Photograph Priory Oronsay Scotland
Old photograph of the ruins of the medieval Priory on the Isle of Oronsay, a small tidal island south of Colonsay in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. The remains of the priory are thought to have originated as a Celtic monastery founded by St Columba and refounded by John, Lord of the Isles for canons regular. The priory first appears on record in 1353. It was secularised in 1616 when the lands were granted to the Bishop of the Isles.
