St Maelrubha's Chapel

Construction materials: Stone - Used for walls;

St. Maelrubha's Chapel is also known as Kilvaree and Craignish Chapel. The chapel is surrounded by an old burial ground, and there is a new burial ground across the lane. The remaining walls are constructed in rubble stone. Inside the shell of the chapel are many carved and sculpted stones, exposed to the elements (the chapel has no roof). There is a sloping perspex shelter at the western end of the chapel to protect some of the more important carved stones. Researched by A. Kahane, compiled by J. Dowling, 25/8/03.
