Monument to Iain Lom MacDonald, Cille Choireil, Achluachrach

Just off the A86, two miles from Roy Bridge, lies Cille Choireil Church or Kil-a-Choireil (church of St. Cyril). This Roman Catholic church and burying place contains the graves of the Gaelic bards Iain Lom MacDonald and Domhuill Mac Fhuinlaidh. One of Iain Lom's more famous works is a poem he wrote to commemorate the victory of Charles I at the Battle of Inverlochy in 1645.
