Scope and Content Drawing showing exterior and interior views, section and plan of south window in chapel on Orsay Island, Islay, Argyll and Bute The small islet of Orsay lies just south-west of the 'Rhinns' peninsula of Islay, opposite the village of Portnahaven. The only buildings on the island are the lighthouse built in 1824-5, and the remains of a medieval chapel and burial-ground. Standing at the north of the island, the chapel is now incorporated within an oblong gable-ended building. The western portion is the original chapel, while the rest seems to have been added in the late 18th or early 19th century to create a storehouse. As these drawings show, this lancet-window has deeply splayed jambs (sides) and head, which is formed from slab voussoirs (stones forming the arch) and a shaped keystone.
