Had a wonderful view of this church from the cottage I was staying in while holidaying on Harris. A short walk over the hill brought me to this lovely church in a lovely setting. Definitely worth a visit with information boards giving you the history.

The very atmospheric church was built in the 16th Century by the MacLeod family of Harris. It is charming sit. On the down site, it is a shame that it is bare of furniture inside, and more information panels would be welcomed.

We got there with a near blue sky and got some brilliant photos. Great area just to wander around or linger and relax.

Perfect little church on the headland in a really peaceful setting. Go early morning or late afternoon to really get the atmosphere. Wonderful stone carvings and a real history going back hundreds of years.

Sometimes it is easy to forget about churches etc amidst all of Harris's dramatic scenery but this is worth the scenic drive down to the very south east of the island. It is a well presented and documented ancient church and burial ground of the MacLeods. Interesting and unusual both inside and out: lots of symbolic carvings etc. Climb to... More

Wonderful location and atmosphere. However, PLEASE for the custodians of this building, put in some head height warnings. Experienced head injury twice, resulting in scar tissue. They were little people back In the day. Nowadays, we grow taller and the warnings for low height should be in place!
