This lovely small church sits in a lovely spot with nice views. It is a small local church and grave yard. There is some great history worth searching out for this place and when you come see if you can find the musket ball hole...More

A small church and a lovely setting with good views. The graveyard headstones tell of folk who lived locally and there are three Commonwealth war graves from WW1 there too. May they never be forgotten

We visited Cille Choirill Church and graveyard on August 4 in the pouring rain. The location is breathtaking, and we found our great great grandparents stone quickly. Five cousins, each meeting the other for virtually the first time, in an amazing setting.

If you are lucky enough to pass through Spean Bridge and Roybridge, take the turnoff for this church and walk among the tombstones set against the backdrop of the Grampian Mountains. A life-changing experience.

My house looks across at the Church on the hillside and we visit it regularly. We also run a B&B and recommend our guests visit- they are never disappointed, whatever the time of year or the weather, it is so atmospheric. It looks good with...More
