Summary Notes
Our Lady of the Braes (RC), Polnish, 1872 A simple white buttressed box with gothic glazing, but a stirring landmark viewed from the old road amidst the barren grandeur of the Sound of Arisaig, with Roshven as its backdrop. Built to serve the now deserted townships of Ardnish and Polnish, this lone monument to the former inhabitants of the empty landscape has a poignant significance. ref: http://www.scotlandsplaces.gov.uk/search_item/i...
