Scope and Content These albums were owned by Revd. JB Mackenzie, minister of Colonsay 1861-72 and of Kenmore 1872-1911. They contain large, high quality photographs taken in the late 1860s and early 1870s and were at one time in the possession of the Society of Antiquaries. Many of them show rock formations on Colonsay and carved stones there and at Oronsay, Keills, Loch Swyn and other locations in Knapdale. At one cross at Keills a man with a gun is posed beside a lady with a small coggie and four sheep. There is a view of the village and ruins of Kilmory, Point of Knap with a man sitting on an upturned basket with a rather blurred horse. Other ruins at Ealan Naomh include “an oven-shaped building locally regarded as the tomb of St. Columba’s mother.”
