This is an interesting grave yard with plenty of history documented by the gravestones. Those who didn't survive the wreck of the Orion were buried here along with other unfortunate mariners. Interesting tower.

OK Who built this?
Looks Irish to me.Little graveyard attached. The church is outline only but well worth a look in the back of town.

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 in the history of this town.

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.

Quaint little building, main tower intact, body of church has lost its roof , had a job to find entrance to the graveyard. Walked the perimetre of the walls looking through people's gardens , entrance is just off the main road next to a cottage through a small gated arch. Lots of history esp local shipwrecks tragic deaths burials.
