Archaeology Notes

NH19SW 2 1313 9408.

In the centre of the east churchyard of Ullapool stand the remains of a chapel - now used as a tombstone (sic), but, during 1745-6, used as an ammunition store for the English soldiers.

A C M Mitford 1936

The remains of this chapel, situated at NH1313 9408, measure approx 9.0 x 6.0m and survive to a height of 2.4m. It is of dry-stone construction, harled on both sides, with a door in the south wall and a square niche on the inside of the north wall. Within the chapel, there are several gravestones. The tradition that this chapel was used as an ammunition store is still known locally. (Information from Mr J R Matheson Custom House St., Ullapool).
