Introduction

Possible mediaeval chapel ruins, and an associated burial ground south of Crackaig, near the rocky south shore of the Treshnish peninsula.


Description

Little remains of the chapel above-ground, but it appears rectangular in plan, oriented E-W with a west-facing entrance, in the style of a traditional early church. It is of dry-stone construction. Stone markers and a rubble wall surround the structure, though none of the surrounding stones can be positively identified as tombstones. Local knowledge of the site is absent, and it appears to have no recorded history, but is nonetheless structurally indicative of an early church and graveyard.
