Scenes From the Abbey at Skye

The Abbey at Skye is a scale model of the ruins of an Abbey on the island of Scottish isle of Skye. It has been carefully created by artist Grey Cross to be used for an extensive series of art showing the spirits, faerie folk and mysticism surrounding this ancient place. Photographs will be taken in a wide variety of lighting and angles to weave a story around the Abbey and its history with the intention of eventually creating a novella to accompany the art. There are about 200 man hours involved just in the creation of the model itself. More images will follow on this page as the project develops so check back often. 


Julius Caesar never made it to Scotland when he conquered early Britain. This piece shows the ghost of Caesar returning to Scotland to claim it for the long lost Roman Empire. A pict slave girl rests at his feet while a blood moon rises over the abbey.
