Atmospheric, well worth a visit.

Allow ample time for this visit, it is a fascinating church, with an historic graveyard. Make sure you climb the tower too.

Visited this church as only a short walk from our accomodation. Set in a beautiful location , and some interesting gravestones on the way in. Built in the 1500's for such an early church it is beautiful in design. Although fairly empty inside there are a few tombs, carvings and ancient grave markers inside along with interesting display boards talking... More

A fascinating 500 year old tiny church at Rodel. It is bare inside but for a few artifacts and the tomb of its founder Alexander MacLeod. There are some interesting carved tombstones showing Celtic knotwork and some other interesting stone carvings. The stone floor is apparently original which is amazing considering the age and you can get up to the... More

A lovely place to visit and to find out about the history of Harris. Interesting stone carvings and monuments. It was enjoyable to glean more information about the Clan McLeod. You can climb up the tower where there is a trough of rusting coins and other objects. The views from the cemetery are wonderful, it is such a quiet and... More

We had a short stop to visit this empty church! It has a small tower you can climb and some interesting historical information inside. Well worth a stop on the way past. The buildings in the graveyard around the back of the church are worth a look.

Some interesting carvings inside and you can climb the stone stairs up the tower. A strange tray full of coins and other bits and pieces gradually rusting as drips fall from the stones above.

Our second trip here, this time in fantastic early autumn weather, very atmospheric to walk around and reflect on the gravestones, interior likewise enough history and objects to look at for all ages. You sense the strong historic presence throughout.

An authentically 'old' 16th century church that has been restored but has to be seen to be believed. A well-kept churchyard and well preserved tombstone covers on display inside. There are several 'crusader' style tombs set in niches within with incredibly well executed carvings over the recesses of local and mythological scenes. You can climb the tower a little way... More

The church and burialground of the MacLeods lies at the southern end of the Leslie of Harris. The church is very simple built of stone. Inside the church there is a aura of Peace, simplicity and calmnes. The church fits perfectly in the landscape and seemd part of it. It is a MUST while on Harris

Who would have expected to find a church like this, practically in the middle of nowhere? No longer in use, it is swt up for visitors who can see the benefits of lordly patronage - and desire for immortality- in the memorials to long gone Scots. Signage is a little confusing- it took us all the way around the block... More
