Archaeology Notes

NG20NE 41 2708 0522

The Roman Catholic chapel on Canna is a single-storey building to the E of the modern farmhouse at The Square. It is built of random rubble and has a slate roof. It reverted to use as a chapel when the church (NG20SE 25) on Sanday was closed in 1963; in the interim it had served as a post office.

Visited by RCAHMS (ARG), 16 August 1996.
