Site of St Assind's Chapel, Bracadale
Behind the Bracadale Free Presbyterian church lies this ancient burial ground. Within it are the foundations of a building said to be an old church (information from Mr Lockhart, Bracadale). The remains consist of turf-covered foundations, orientated NE-SW, constructed of rubble masonry bonded with shell-lime mortar and divided into two compartments. The larger measures about 10.0m long by 5.0m wide internally with walling 1.5m wide and 0.7m high, the smaller 5m square internally with walling of similar dimensions. The building has been extensively mutilated by graves which now lie both inside and on top of the walling, but its general appearance, plan and orientation suggest that it is almost certainly St. Assind's Chapel.
