Cathair Moluaig - St Moluag's Chair

One of the ways to make a day trip to Lismore is to take the Port Appin Ferry to the north end of the island. That was how my wife and I first visited Lismore, and after seeing the church at Clachan we followed a track down to see the dramatic ruin of Castle Coeffin. On our way back to the ferry I jumped over a wire fence to take a seat on St Moluag's stone chair. The tradition is that the saint rested here often, and people suffering from back pain once came here to sit in the chair. It used to look more like a chair, but at some point the arms were broken off.
