Clachan Duich Church and Cemetery

Clachan Duich is the ancient church and burial ground of the MacRaes of Kintail. Situated close to the head of Loch Duich, Clachan Duich has been in use since at least 1050, and probably much earlier. It is dedicated to St Duthac, the 11th century Bishop of Ross. The ruins of the old church are surrounded by marked and unmarked graves.

Overlooking the church and cemetery is the Clan MacRae war memorial, which was unveiled on 15 July 1922. On the right is the modern causeway which carries the A87 across the mouth of the River Croe.
