The archway to the modern graveyard once was the south doorway to the St. Colmcille's church. Seen from the southeast.


Once an old church was over here, dedicated to St. Colmcille, but now it's gone and a new church stands next to where the other was.
The place is also known with the name of Relicknalaniv.
Of the old church only a few elements remain. An archway, that now leads to the modern graveyard, was likely the arch of the south doorway of the church. On both sides of the arch there are two segments of an ancient wall, still belonging to old church. At the end of the west segment there's an old baptismal font.
These three elements are all that remains from the old St. Colmcille's church.
To the west there's a rocky outcrop and on the top of it there's the St. Colmcille's holy well.
