Splendid destination for a very small after-lunch excursion. Saint Lawrence is the patron saint of Burray and South Ronaldsay. The church, also known as Old Burray Kirk, dates back to 1621 and is a very pretty ruin. The cemetery is still in use. The whole stands on the site of a possible broch. There are some Commonwealth War Graves there.
There is a nice view on the approach.
With its nave open to the skies, there is a pleasant feeling with the church walls
A very touching gravestone. The text at the bottom of the little white cross reads "Who ne'er wept nor smiled". It's for a child, stillborn in 1901

Getting there is simple
I like to take photos and am fond of clichés - so I'll say I find them to be worth a thousand words.
