Kilchalmkil - North Uist

I love wandering around the old mound type burial grounds that you find in the islands. This one is Kilchalmkil (St Columba's) in Clachan Sands of North Uist. Sand and time have done their damage and there is no sign of the church that once stood here. The graves are laid out in lines, called roiligein in Gaelic (see page 159 of Bill Lawson's North Uist).
