We were there by ourselves, except for the ginger church cat who greeted us and loved on us a bit. This is a really interesting bit of history and worth the 20 minute drive from Stornoway.

Great little chapel, lots of information too on the chapel and the surrounding area. Parking a couple of minutes walk away. Nice views and beach & cliff top walk also worth doing.

At the end of a crofting road you can park and it is a short walk to this ancient ruin. Well signposted overlooking Broad Bay.

Visited on a windy day, with rain going sideways. This is a nice chapel and the weather added nicely to the feel of the place. A good cemetery to wander through as well. Parking is a bit iffy, so plan accordingly. The walk from nearby...More

Thank you - 5 miles each way will be too far to walk in the time that we have.
