Abernathy Church at Nethybridge

My last post was about the boring churchyards of Scotland. But, I really should clarify.

True, there isn't much of artistic interest in the design of the stones themselves. But every churchyard we visited seemed to be able to present us with at least one little surprise.

The Abernathy Church at Nethybridge offered this little gem tucked up against the hedge at the far back of the churchyard. It was in an area that still didn't have any graves, so there was an expanse of yard.

We weren't sure what it was. But we guessed that it was some sort of contemplation hut. It is obviously lovingly handcrafted.

The hut is beautiful!

Deborah responds: Isn't it, though? We were quite taken with it. Up close the detal of the workmanship is amazing.

The hut is very interesting. It looks a lot like the architecture of the Russian explorers on the California coast. I would not expect to see that in Scotland!

Deborah Responds: I agree, Marta. Dan and I both agreed that it was cool but looked very out of place.

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Hi Deborah, great photos. I also think this hut is beautifully hand crafted. Very interesting to see in your close up shots.

Thanks so much for sharing your photos and experiences visiting this churchyard.

Deborah responds: Thanks, Kathy.

Beautiful hut. Reminds me of a Polynesian design.
