While travelling round Harris it is worth a stop off here. It is right on the southern point of the island and is very interesting. There are narrow stairs up to the top of the tower where you can leave some small coins for luck. Walking round the graveyards is also interesting, some beautiful and ancient headstones.

A delightful and ancient temple. Would have liked to have had more information on the history and details and stories on the features inside and outside the church.

This historic church sits at the south end of the Isle of Harris about 45 minutes drive from the ferry at Tarbet. You can climb the narrow stairs up the tower, see some ancient tombs and headstones and wander the graveyard. A beautiful, peaceful stop. The single track road up the east coast is worth taking (slowly) to experience the... More

tucked away in a corner of Harris, very atmospheric. a cemetery may not be an obvious attraction but this is well-worth a visit.

You don't have to particularly like visiting churches but this is one of the most interesting ones I've been to. Climb the tower and leave a coin at the top. Read the story boards around the church and discover it's fascinating history. Wander around the picturesque grounds and take in the views.

This church is well worth a visit steeped in local history of the Macleod clan. Famous for several stone coffins with well preserved effigies of their occupants. Adjacent to the church are some toilets clean and maintained by the locals. the Ladies is particularly interesting insofar as it has a visitors book!

St. Clements church has been restored. It is a beautiful old church for its period. Located at the southern tip of Harris and outside of Rodal. This is a family church with interesting details inside of it. Well worth a visit.
