Bell at St. Conan's Kirk, Loch Awe
Does anyone have any details concerning the bell from Skerryvore Lighthouse
that is now in the Bruce Chapel at the above church? Extract from website
"Beneath the figure, let into the base, is a small ossuary which contains a
bone of the King himself, taken from Dunfermline Abbey. In the chapel also
are stored two screens from Eton College Chapel. It was Mr. Campbell's
intention to erect these in another small chapel on the north side of the
church, but on his death this project was abandoned. The large bell, which
came from Skerryvore Lighthouse, was to have been hung in the church
tower-but again this proposal had to be abandoned on the death of the founder."
