This graveyard, which is still in occasional use, is surrounded by a 19th century wall and contains no gravestones with legible dates earlier than the 19th century. The triangular "basin stone" is built into the NE wall with an inscribed plaque in Gaelic above it. No trace and no local knowledge of St Uradan's Well.

About 8 yds from E wall of the graveyard is a triangular basin-stone. No tradition exists regarding it, but it was probably a font connected with chapel. It was long used as a gravestone of a family of McDougals.

An old graveyard called Killuradan or the graveyard of St. Uradan. (W Jolly 1882) The combination of Killuradan, Claodh Churidan and St. Uradan's Well nearby, leaves little doubt that this was the site of one of the chapels of St. Curitan with its associated graveyard and well. St. Curitan was active 700-750 AD. (W J Watson 1926) <2>
