Unfortunately due to current (covid) restrictions the church has been closed to the public. Luckily we were still able to walk around the grounds. Beautiful church,full of history and charm. Would have loved to go inside so will be sure to be back for a visit. Very atmospheric and stands very prominently in the rugged skyline. Beautiful stop.

We made two trips here. the first trip was great but when we got back to tour lodging we realized we hadnt found the the stone heart in the stone wall so we went back and found it. Read the story and go find the heart in the wall after you tour the church. Great stop

What a great place to visit whether in sun, wind or rain. We have visited each time we have been in Harris and learn more each visit. The Church itself is amazing - the historical information available is interesting on many levels - whatever your reason for visiting - don't miss the views a the rear graveyard

Beautiful church with stunning panoramic views. Well kept grounds and a number of interesting headstones. Sadly all locked up so we couldn’t go inside or up the tower as we’d read about in the guidebooks! Worth a stop on your tour of Isle of Harris.

This is a well preserved isolated medieval church in a beautiful location next to the sea to the south and the mountains of South Harris to the north. It is well worth a visit especially when the weather is good. We were able to ascend the tower and we were rewarded with a lovely sea view near the top. The church is also surrounded by a graveyard which contains numerous McLeod tombs.

The most isolated church on Harris, you will pass this lovely little church when driving along the golden road, it has some wonderful carvings from 500 years ago and a very old graveyard with some very interesting gravestones. Its definitely worth a stop!

Situated right on the southern tip of the Isle of Harris, this beautiful old church really is worth a visit. You can walk around as you like, climb the narrow stairs up the tower, and take photos. Some old chieftans from the McLeod clan who once ruled the island are buried here, and the church also contains some really old carved stones that were found in the area.

Any trip to the Isle of Harris should include a visit to St. Clement's Church at Rodel. The church is considered to be the finest medieval building in the Outer Hebrides. It was built around 1520 by Alexander Macleod of Dunvegan.

Outside the church, there are a collection of graves, mostly overgrown. The inside of the church is reached via a wooden door on the Northside of the church. The interior is laid out in the form of a cross and is rich in details.

The gem of the church is the tomb of Alexander Macleod. His tomb is rich in scupltures of biblical scenes and pulled together in an arch. It is worth taking a few moments to contemplate the rich details of the tomb, including the reclining knight in his armour.

There is a tower, which is worth a visit.

All in all, a great place to spend an hour to walk back in time and soak up the history.

The church is in the care of Historic Scotland

Built by clan leaders this is a well preserved church. Intricate carvings that tell stories of time gone by are all still clear and not weathered due to being inside. Worth a visit.
