No one is really sure why this part-ruined tower was built and why it was for some time part of the local kirk. It is unusual in its shape so was it originally a lighthouse? Anyway, it is interesting for its shape and its place...More

Some of the headstones are very old,but they tell a story and the history of the area. Most of the stones show the dates quite clearly and others are very crumbly but interesting just the same.

Another must see if your in the area! This ruin is tucked away and looks as if it's in someone's back garden but it's not. Accessible to the public and a little piece of history that simply must be seen
