St. Donnan's Episcopal Church, Eric Stevenson, 1964 Tiny chapel of whitewashed blockwork with asphalted concrete and woodwool roof slabs, sequestered in a birchwood clearing by the Nostie burn. Built to a tiny budget using amateur labour largely made up of the architect's own family, this utiliterian structure has an interior of moving simplicity. Stones from the burn were built into the walls to create primitive figures such as Noah; Stevenson carved the angel figures on the altar himself and copied others on the font from Iona Abbey.
