(NR 3846 4646) Cill Bhride (NR) Chapel (NR) (In Ruins)

(NR 3847 4645) Tobar an t-Sagairt (NR)

OS 6" map, Argyllshire, 2nd ed., (1900)

The remains of St Bride's Chapel measuring 30ft by 12ft within walls standing to a maximum height of 3ft. The entrance appears to have been in the south, and one or two heavy blocks of stone lie within the building, which is dry built. There are traces of an enclosure.

A cross marked slab which formerly stood 11ft east of the ruin is now, after various moves, in NMAS. It is 2ft 3ins long; the cross, in relief within a ring, is equal armed; and the affinities appear to be with 7th to 9th century Wales.

'Tobar an t-Sagairt', the Well of the Priest, lies on the south side of the burial ground.
