Photographer's Note

Situated on an island in the middle of Lake Menteith, the only 'Lake' in Scotland, Inchmahome Priory is a ruined Augustine (The Black Cannons) priory founded in 1238 by Walter Comyn, who was the Earl of Menteith. The Earl is likely to have founded the monastery for the good of his soul, and to show of his status as an important landowner. The priory would also provide his family with a final resting place befitting of his grandeur!
The island is reached by a boat from the pier at the Port of Menteith and is now looked after by Historic Scotland.
It was a damp morning with drizzle but I think that added to the atmosphere.
