“Lovely little church”

Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This 16th century church is plain and simple and well worth a visit. The drive to Rodel takes you to the south-east corner of Harris. While you are there, it is also worth looking at Rodel's little harbour. And, if driving, it is worth travelling to or from Rodel via the Golden Road where you will see the unique beautiful rocky South Harris landscape at its best. But be careful of the narrow winding roads.

This a a beautiful historic church perched on a hilltop. There is essentially an empty church, but it has been very well maintained and the tower steps are open. On the lower level, there is a display of engraved stones and their meaning. If you choose to go into the tower, be careful on the steps and of the low head space.

I found the graveyard to be the most interesting part - I find old gravestones to be fascinating. I may be impartial since I'm a MacLeod, and there were quite a few MacLeod stones.

Be prepared to get a bit muddy if the ground is wet. Watch your step so you don't twist an ankle.

Don't take the car walk over the hill it is a fairly easy walk (I'm over 70 with bad knees) no problem. it is well worth the effort.

This 16th century church stands up very well to others of the same vintage, beautiful stonework, fireplaces and a really nice carved mantle piece with a variety of biblical scenes. Complete with s Sheila ma gigh outside

Considering this is a bare and pretty empty stone building perched on a hill, the visit was remarkably interesting! The information on the tombs inside - and generally - was well laid out (although it begs a few questions). One can even climb the tower. An added plus for tourists was the proximity of well-maintained toilet facilities.
