-----
A graveyard, enclosed and still in use in 1910, said to be the site of a chapel dedicated to the 7th century St Triduan. There were remains of a small building on the N of the enclosure in 1871, but its nature was not known. When visited by the RCAHMS in 1910, any old tombstones there might have been were obscured by rank weeds and grass.
RCAHMS 1911; Name Book 1871; A MacKay 1914.

Much rubble and building material lie scattered within and around the graveyard, but no intelligible foundation remains. Weathering has made all the old tombstones illegible.
Visited by OS (R L) 9 May 1967.

No change. Visited by OS (N K B) 6 December 1982.
