Slabs at Cladh a' Bhile, Knapdale

The burial ground of Cladh a' Bhile is found near the village of Ellary by the side of Loch Caolisport. A number of carved and decorated tombstones were found at Cladh a' Bhile and there is a collection of 29 cross slabs.

Figure 1 in this illustration was the most complete found by TP White on his visit. It shows single and double elliptical spirals which are in keeping with the Irish character of stones found at Keills on Islay. The other sketches in the illustration are of slab fragments bearing simpler cross carvings.
