NC81SW 8 8236 1109.

(NC 8236 1108) Graveyard (NAT)

OS 6" map, Sutherland, 2nd ed., (1907)

There is a church at Aschoile, about 8m from the parish church. The inhabitants have of late begun to bury their dead there. The church is in a poor state of repair.

Statistical Account (OSA) 1794.

The graveyard is a walled enclosure 26.0m long ENE to WSW by 5.0m at its eastern end widening to 10.5m at its western end. There are about a dozen gravestones, the earliest legible date being 1790, though some stones bearing only initials may well be earlier.

The footings of several buildings lie to the west of the graveyard (see NC81SW 9 - 'Ascoile' depopulation but none could be identified as the remains of the church mentioned by the Statistical Account (OSA 1794). Enquiries as to its site were fruitless.
