St Regulus Graveyard - 1998

On a spur of the South Sutor, near to Cromarty House, many of the graves date back to the 17th century.

Comments:
On the right of the picture you can see the lower branches of an Atlantic Cedar (Cedrus atlantica) - one of the finest specimens in the area. Presumably this was planted during George Ross's time when he planted a lot of trees on the Sutor, including the beautiful avenue of Beech trees down to MacFarquhar's Bed. These beech trees are unfortunately reaching senility and are in desperate need of re-planting if future generations are to enjoy them. See this picture which shows the avenue.

Is Sandy Wood's grave in this Pic?

No Craig, it's outside the graveyard - I'll try to get one before long.

Anybody know the significance of the broken crockery, wooden cross and flowers (some recent) on a grave in this cemetery.

I think you will find that is Gail Pocock's late husband's grave.

Re comment by Colin Dunn 06 Feb 2003:
The fine Cedar mentioned is actually Himalayan Cedar (Cedrus deodara) not Atlas Cedar.
Added by John Miller on 21 September 2011
That makes sense. I forgot the mnemonic which helps in recognising the tree species by the branch structure - Deodar descending, Atlas ascending.
