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!

Nice church and cemetery. Very old and historic. Pretty surroundings, plus there's sheep. Room to park your car too.

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.

St Clement's Church is a lovely building in a tranquil location at the southern end of Harris in Rodale just to the south of the ferry from North Uist/Bernaray that comes into Leverburgh. Although disused it still casts a spell as a holy place. Dating back to the 16th century, it was restored in 1873 by the Countess of Dunmore.... More

Easy to park, nearby toilets and an ancient church. Not my favourite visit but some of you will love it, so ignore me. I preferred the Iron Age House.

If locked ask in the Rodel Hotel for the key. But it's usually open I was told. The family church of the Macleod clan since 1500 must be worth a visit. Fascinating detailed carving of religious and hunting images above the main Macleod tomb in the church. Useful information plaques in the church also on the Heritage Scotland website. Climb... More

St Clements is beautiful, take the walk to Rodel from Renish Point and wander up to the lovely 16th century church and enjoy the stories inside. It's beautiful.
