A resident of Balivanich has reported that local tradition does not associate this building with St Columba but does record that it was in use as a cemetery and that the area was tidal at one point prior to the construction of a dyke at Uacher.

Tradition in the area does record that there was a church associated with St Columba in the north west of Benbecula at a place called Te I, meaning the Church of Iona.
