Soroby on the Hebridean island of Tiree is the likely site of the monastery of Saint Baithéne, “Mag Luinge”. The monastery, founded in 567 AD is thought to be a house for penitents and wayward Monks from Iona Abbey.
Within the cemetery of Cladh Sorobaidh stands a sculpted cruciform slab, known as Maclean’s cross, bearing on one face a Celtic Cross and on the other a Latin Cross. This piece is a miniature reconstruction of the Celtic Cross element.
MacLean’s cross probably dates to around the 6th Century. However no further information has been discovered on the origin and meaning of this ancient Celtic cross.
