The Kirkmichael Trust
Our current campaign is to get the broken and collapsed memorials in the remainder of the site repaired and re-erected and are seeking funding to achieve this. Mary McDonald was a poor dairymaid who scrimped and saved to erect a worthy tablestone in memory of her parents. She died a pauper in 1865, but the stone she had saved for lasted well - until accidentally smashed by workmen 20 years ago. Now we are seeking to have it re-carved - the first tablestone to be carved in a century! Please help!
We're also working on lots of exciting heritage projects with our partners.
The Kirkmichael Trust SCIO (SC033652) is a Black Isle community charity set up to restore Kirkmichael and seek beneficial management of the site. Having rescued Kirkmichael, our focus is now on developing the medieval display within the restored buildings and enhancing the site after a hundred years of neglect. See our website for downloadable leaflets on Kirkmichael and graveyard practice in the north of Scotland, local history books, mugs, tea-towels and cards. Our Facebook page is a lively heritage resource and our website now hosts, in its "Story behind the Stone" series, one of the world's best local history and genealogy resources related to a particular locality. Our current initiative is to repair and re-erect fallen memorials, and to enhance our current display. It already contains a wonderful set of medieval ornate crosses, complemented by a typical post-Reformation “symbols of mortality” ornate stone. We are seeking to enhance this with a "Claymore stone" from the transitional period after the Scottish Reformation. We hold a work party every Saturday morning, rain or shine, to maintain the site. Come and join us!
