Cladh Bhri'd (St. Bridget's) churchyard at Benchar. A chapel existed here at one time.
A Macbain 1891.
No trace could be found of St. Bridget's Chapel although the graveyard Gu Cladh Bhrichde is well maintained and still in use.
Visited by OS (R D) 27 September 1965.
The site of this chapel appears to be marked by a rectangular platform about 0.2m high in the centre of the burial ground. The platform measures 24m from NW to SE by 9.5m transversely, and the MacPherson of Banchor burial enclosure stands on its SE end. The cemetery is still in use.
