Ballachly Chapel and Burial Ground, Latheron

Construction materials: Stone - Used for walls;

This chapel is now just an eroded ruin, set within a graveyard approximatelly 25 metres by 16 metres. The baptismal font said to once reside in the chapel is said to lie at Rhianacoil, although this cannot be verified. The graveyard is located on around half of a large mound, said to be the remains of a broch. The graveyard is surrounded by a wall with an iron gate. The area is now overgrown and neglected.
