Restenneth Priory photographed from ground levelYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
Originally thought to be the site of a Pictish church dating from around 710CE. The current ruin on the site dates from around 1200. Although the priory is thought to have existed from at least a century before, as the annuls of Iona were transferred here in around 1100CE by Alexander I. Robert the Bruce buried his infant son, John here in the 1300s. The tower stands at around 14 metres tall.
The model was produced from 809 images, which were taken from ground level. Having tried numerous ways of trimming the mesh due to missing detail at the tops of the walls. These are around 20 feet high. It became evident it looked tidier just to leave things as they were. The images were taken over 2 visits to the site. Nikon D5300, 18-55mm kit lens.
