Archaeology Notes

NL94SW 4 c. 942 425.

(?NL 9507 4299) The site of a chapel and its burial ground lies on the hillock, Cnoc a' Claodh - Hill of the Burial Ground - close to the Barrapol side of the wire fence which divides that farm from Balameanach (whose northern extremity is now known as Middleton: NL 945 433).

The fence, which was erected not long before 1903, had to be deviated because of the number of human bones being exhumed. Such remains still occur upon the surface.

Sands (J Sands 1882) located part of the 3 1/2' thick E gable of the chapel.

E Beveridge 1903; J Sands 1882

The name Cnoc a' Claodh is not known locally, though it is reported that a burial ground was situated at about NL 942 425.

This is an area of grass-covered sand dunes and no trace of a burial ground or chapel can be seen.

Visited by OS (J P) 29 June 1972.
