Burial ground by River Laggan, Islay
Burial ground by River Laggan, Islay
This burial ground was last used to bury a sailor washed ashore about 1840. It has gradually been eroded and probably much of the site, which once contained an old chapel, is under the River Laggan. A cross-shaft and incised slab from this site are preserved in the Museum of Islay Life at Port Charlotte.
