Chapel, Nave Island, Islay
Chapel, Nave Island, Islay
The island name Eilean Neimh means 'Nein's Island', and probably derives from one of the four saints of that name. The church is thought to have been founded by a disciple of St Columbus and can roughly be dated to the 13th century, although the enclosure within which it stands dates back much further. It measured about 22 ft internally. It was ruinous by 1785, in which year it was repaired with the addition of a tall brick chimney for the purpose of burning kelp.
