We toured the grounds of St. Clement's when we stayed on Harris. Beautiful architecture and fascinating cemetery to explore. Limited on-street side parking, but not crowded at all. Take a flashlight as nothing is lit up inside. Some information placards provide limited detail about what we saw. We'd like to find out more before going back for a re-visit.

Take a wee while to read the information on the boards inside the church and enjoy the historic atmosphere. Rodel is a great place to walk and you will find lots of sea glass on the pebble shores around the headland.

worth getting here although you think that the road will never end. Information boards inside telling you the history of the Church and if you do the climb up the tower you get a nice surprise at the top which will surprise any townie. Interesting gravestones with poignant stories.

Where to start? I went to Harris on holiday a year ago with a friend renting a lovely cottage in the Bays area. The Isle of Harris is AMAZING!!!!! It has everything; Luskentyre Beach, Donald John the weaver (am currently sewing some of his amazing tweed), St. Clement's Church (what did the Knights Templar have to do with this area?),... More

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.
