Event ID 921625

Category Recording

Type Field Visit


This site is now very ruined and little is to be seen except for the vague footings of the chapel which measure internally about 6.0m E-W by 3.8m. The entrance is not apparent.

The burial ground occupies the flat top of a low rocky ridge and is enclosed by the slight remains of a rubble wall. Within it are traces of a rectangular building oriented NW-SE, an uninscribed headstone and the knocking stone.

No carved stones are to be seen in the nearby houses but a small inscribed cross, on an ashlar block, measuring about 0.2m high, was found in the wall of a small building at NR 4058 9542 by Mr Alexander in January 1974; it remains in his possession (see NR49NW 8.02).

Surveyed at 1:10,000.

Visited by OS (JP) 19 April 1974; Information from D Alexander, Glen Cottage, Scalasaig.
