Ah yes i remember it well. The kirk still stands just as good as when it was built. I have a photo somewhere o the masons and other workers, probably find it someday when i am not looking for it. Not many of them still around.

When i put on the photo o the men building the kirk i said that there were two missing. Ernie Stanger was one o them, the gent here was the other. Last time i saw him he was in Longhope.I think his car would be what they used to adversise in the Orcadian as "A good isles car"
