Cille Choirill Cross

$41.00 USD

Situated high above the River Spean in the Breas of Lochaber the tiny church of Cille Choirill offers commanding views down over Glen Spean. The site has Catholic connections that go back to the days of the Irish missionary, Cairell, about 600 AD. The hill where St. Cairell had his cell is named after him in Gaelic, Cille Choirill, and is about 2km from Roy Bridge. It is very sacred to the people, and has a 15th century church in his honour and an ancient burial ground.

The most common budded cross design is with 3 buds on each cross end, which represents the Trinity: God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The three budded cross is also sometimes called the Apostles Cross, with each bud representing one of the twelve Apostles.

From: Highland, Scotland

 

Due to the hand casting and proprietary staining process, each of my plaques is unique. Each cross comes with a hanger embedded in the stone. The cross comes with a descriptive tag describing the original stone, explanation of the design or information on where the cross is located.
