Full Description

(Name: NH 4956 2402) Graveyard (NAT) (Remains of)
OS 6"map, Inverness-shire, 2nd ed., (1903)

"There was in those olden times (temp SS Merchard, Columba and Curadan) a chapel at Lag an t-Seapail - the Hollow of the Chapel - in Bunloit, where traces of old graves are still visible."
W MacKay 1914

There is no trace of a chapel. The graveyard at NM 4950 2402 is roughly oval measuring about 20.0m NE-SW by 16.5m within a tumbled wall reduced to a low band of overgrown rubble about 1.5m wide, overlaid in parts by piles of later stone cearance and virtually destroyed in the NW. There are some earthfast stones and slabs in the interior but none certainly indentifiable as grave markers. Set erect in the wall core in the N, is a dressed stone slab and outside the graveyard to the SW is another displaced.
