Chapel remains on Cnoc a' Cladh
Chapel remains on Cnoc a' Cladh
On the summit of a small hill to the south of the township of Balmore, at about 100' above sea-level is the site of a chapel and burying ground. Two rectangular foundations of buildings can be traced lying almost parallel to each other about 4' apart. The smaller building measures 31' in length and 18' in breadth externally, the larger structure measures externally 54' by 29'.
The smaller of the two buildings is a chapel. It is orientated NW - SE with walling of roughly squared masonry, approx 0.8m wide, bonded with shell-lime mortar. The possible footings of the altar are visible at the E end. The other 'building' is a disused graveyard. No graves survive and according to local tradition they were removed many years ago for reburial at Kilmuir, Dunvegan. The small hill on which the chapel and graveyard are situated is called Cnoc a' Cladh.
