“Ancient history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

The chapel is reached via a B (or C road!) and then a longish walk on a rough path through fields. There is a very strong smell of sheep! The ruined chapel has well maintained walls and grounds including a burial place for monks. There is a strong sense of history around the area and it is an excellent area for keen walkers with a wide accessible area to cross.

“Interesting visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Well worth a visit. Quite a climb from the road, but worth it when you get to the chapel. Might need willies on a wet day!

“serene little piece of celtic history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

this wee ruined church was once as important as Iona to the celtic church. a massive elm tree(what a treat these days) stands with mature sycamores and curiously twisted geans guarding the 12th C church and burial ground. It has a feeling a utter peace upon it.
