Pierowall’s Lady Kirk is the shoreside ruin of a 17th century church built on the foundations of a 13th century church.
An impressive aerial view and other details can be seen here:

In the far back of some of these photos, you may see a clear case protecting something from the elements; within it are several gravestones dating back to 1657. Sadly, we don’t have a good shot of those to share, but there are photos of them―pre-case―at the ScotlandsPlaces site too.
Lady Kirk is a beautiful place, resting near the green grass and blue sea.
Another pair of David’s photos (he’s the one who’s taken most of the photos for these Scotland posts). I particularly like the through-the-window one.
One more set of photos from Westray soon!
