‘Quiet, polite and deferential’

Filmed in Kintyre and on the island of Davaar on the 5th February 2019.

This film is for the memory of Archibald MacKinnon who first painted Christ on a crucifix in a cave on the island of Davaar in 1887.

The “quiet, polite and deferential MacKinnon” had left his mark.

I read a number of wonderful local history books when in Campbeltown and have used some of their work. To my shame I did not record the sources as I normally would. I will try and clarify these sources and correct this omission.
