Full Description

NG20NE 45 2695 0560

The buildings and enclosures that formed the township of Keill (A' Chill) are shown on an estate map of 1805. This was the main township on the island, and was centred on the ruins of St Columba's chapel and a free-standing sculptured cross (NG20NE 1 and NG20NE 2 respectively). The area was cleared of tenants in 1851 and no trace of the township can now be seen, although a small enclosure (NG20NE 37) is situated between two rock outcrops 40m to the S of the cross.
