St Mary and St Finnan’s Church – Glenfinnan

This beautiful church is built on  the banks of Loch Shiel. It is a memorial to the Macdonalds of Glenaladale. It is believed that Charles Edward Stuart, “Bonnie Prince Charlie” stayed with the Macdonalds before raising the Jacobite standard in 1745.

  3. Oh my my….this is a stunning church! And what a setting! Your photo is beautiful, Jim. The colors are soft and spotlight the handsome church.
    I’m thinking the loch is behind the church?…I think I can see a bit of water. This is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing this lovely photo.
