Photograph of Crathie Church in Aberdeenshire as seen from a distance in the centre of the background and with the hill of Creag a Chlamhain behind it. In the foreground a wooden fence borders a copse of trees.

The Church in this photograph was built in 1804 but was demolished to make way for a larger church during the 1890's. The Royal Family have all attended Crathie Church to worship during their stay at Balmoral.
