Rosemarkie Church and Burial Ground

The kirkyard wall offers some fine C17th and C18th monuments, including a ‘pedestal’ with fine memento mori.

One of these appears, endearingly, to have been prepared before the death of the man who commissioned it! 

Also of interest is the tomb of Dr William Brydon, the only European military survivor of the massacre at the Khyber Pass in 1842.  He became the local doctor and lived in a house above the Fairy Glen.

The church is still in use, see website for details of services.
