A bit of history. Not that stunning but great drive down the east coast to get there. Interesting but not amazing.

Interesting little mediaeval church. Look out for the stone carvings and the coins in the windowsill. Watch your head using the stairs if you're tall.

St. Clement's Church is an old church and one of the few attractions to visit on the Isle of Harris. Visit the charming church and it's graveyard to learn a little bit about the Hebridean history!

Really lovely spot here with the kind of atmosphere you only get in the Hebridean islands. Very historically interesting- it does not appear to be a consecrated active church and is maintained as a monument - so was it ever used as an Anglican church?

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.
