Týr Chliamainn, Roghadal / St Clement's, Rodel :: Shared Description

This little cruciform church dedicated to St Clement dates originally from the early C16th but has had two major restorations in 1787 and 1873 - the second at the behest of Catherine Herbert, Countess of Dunmore as a plaque on the church attests. With a further restoration in 1913 carried out by W. T. Oldrieve, who stripped off the harling.
It has also had numerous other repairs after fires, lightning strikes and similar calamities!
It is now in the care of Historic Scotland, so hopefully its future is assured. Inside is a little treasure trove of interest and it is very much worth a visit if you are visiting Lewis with Harris.
The Gaelic name (Tùr Chliamainn) means "Clement's Tower"
The most remarkable survivor in this church is the tomb of Alisdair MacLeod see Link
