(NG 4872 6682) Kilmartin (Burial Ground) (NAT)

OS 6" map, Isle of Skye, Inverness-shire, 2nd ed., (1903)

Kilmartin: Name applies to an old graveyard. There are a number of ruins where the old church or chapel is supposed to have stood, but nothing is known about it in the neighbourhood.

Name Book 1878.

There was a chapel to St. Martin at Kilmartin (RCAHMS 1928) and where Kilmartin is named a church is possibly shown (M Martin 1934).

Information from OS (C F W), 10 November 1960.

A long-disused and turf-covered raised stone path leads from near the present gateway into the burial ground, directly towards a green mound near the centre, ending at its foot. The mound is occupied by a family burial enclosure of dry stone walling, 6.0m square, which doubtless occupies the site of the chapel, of which no trace could be found.

Visited by OS (A S P), 25 April 1961.
