A restored medieval church, now in the care of Historic Scotland. Admission free. Interesting tombs & carvings within. Explanatory boards were unclear as to exact position of interesting carvings on exterior of tower - my wife did not see them first time round. I wondered what was the history of small walled enclosures in the churchyard.

Small, interesting MacLeod's church built on the edge of the island - some of the stonework is still in good order around the burial plinths.

The location, history and architecture of this church are truly church and well worth a visit. While there take a short wander down the harbour.

It's definitely worth driving the Golden Road along the coast of Harris and visiting this church. You will likely be alone there, free to climb the tower, wander the graveyard (with sheep) and wonder at the centuries of history it has seen.

There's not much here except a cemetery and shell of a church, but there is much history attached to this church. Worth the time to stop and look around.

Even on a highly windy day with near horizontal light rain this church sings an appealing song. You can walk to the top of the turret (automatic light will turn on to light your way) and get wonderful views. The tombs and artifacts are quiet but enchanting. The sheep are the groundskeepers of the surrounding cemetery.
