New lights for oldest part of Chapel

New lighting has been installed in the Chapel’s Crypt, the oldest part of the building. The lights, designed by Edinburgh company Foto-Ma and created by Mike Stoane Lighting, in Loanhead, have been made to enhance the Crypt’s architectural details and features, such as the engrailed cross of the St Clair family carved on the ceiling. It is thought that the Crypt was used as a workshop when the upper Chapel was being built and there are working drawings scratched on the walls, which were probably for the craftsmen engaged in building the Chapel.
