Burial ground at Cille Choireil, Glen Spean

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 and Domhuill Mac Fhuinlaidh. It also contains the graves of the priests of the glen. 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.

The photo is from 'Loyal Lochaber. Historical Genealogical and Traditionary' by W Drummond Norie, Glasgow, 1898.
