Was previously a church founded by St Columba in AD 535? Lovely interior and old graveyard. It is very small and still used to this day. There are staff there to explain the history.

When you walk the wall on top you will see this pretty little church with its mature trees, lovely plantings and old grave stones. The pathway has gorgeous inlaid pieces. The staff were very friendly and we had a lovely chat.
