• Short Summary

    Old house in Scotland decorated with symbolic crosses.

  • Description

    Galloway, Scotland.

    Nice shot of an old country cottage decorated with symbolic crosses. Several close up shots of some of the crosses - most of them read 'Memento Mori' - Remember Death. Voiceover says that most of them were brought by local mason from the ruins of Dundrennan Abbey nearby - they must have been gravestones. Several shots of the ruins of the abbey - walls are still there, although ruined, but there is no roof. Cut back to the strange house.
