My little post about our jaunt to Eilean Donan castle was really well received. So I thought I’d share another location with you. A couple of years ago my lovely friend and Chief Bridesmaid, Squemily, came to visit us in Stornoway. I took her on a crazy trek around both Lewis and Harris and one of the locations we alighted at was Rodel Church on the Isle of Harris.
We were the only people in the church, which is a little disconcerting when you discover that you have to unlatch the main door on your way in. I didn’t fancy being stuck in there! The stillness was both silent and a little eerie. The floors were brick and beautifully smooth. There is also a pretty cool tomb within the church as well as a passageway up the top of the spire where you can look out to the sea. It was just a nice little place to stop and take some pictures and, of course, bang your head where there are no signs to warn you.
I’m not religious but I do appreciate the beauty of churches and cathedrals. Do you have an opinion on the appearance of religious buildings or how much money is spent on their creation/maintenance?
