Scope and Content St Clement's Church, Rodel, Harris St. Clement's Church is located on a rise above the village of Rodel. It is considered to be the most outstanding church building in the Hebrides and probably dates to the late 15th-early 16th century. This shows St Clement's Church and graveyard (centre) situated ion a rise above the small village and port of Rodel. Behind the church is the harbour. The large complex of buildings alongside the harbour is a hotel. There are also nissen huts located on the shore, relics of the World War II. The church is the traditional burial place of the standard bearers of the MacLeod Clan. Records show that restoration work took place in 1784, 1787 and 1873. The interior of the church contains a funerary monument to the probable founder, Alasdair Crotach (Alexander MacLeod), dated to 1528. It is also the burial place of several of the MacLeod chiefs.
