Interior of Church at Kilmore, Skye

A view of the interior of the church ruins at Kilmore, in Sleat, the Island of Skye. A church was located on the site as early as the 13th century, but these are the ruins of the second church, dating back to 1681 and built at the behest of Sir Donald Macdonald of Sleat.

This church was visited almost a century after its construction by Dr Johnson and James Boswell during their tour of the Hebrides.

Kilmore church was visited by comedian David Mitchell, for the BBC's 'Who do you think you are?' programme. David Mitchell's ancestor, Rev John Forbes, was the minister of Kilmore church in the mid-19th century.
