Chapel of Sand of Udrigil - Laide - Wester Ross
The chapel of Sand of Udrigil, situated in a churchyard crowded with graves, close to the village of Laide. The chapel is traditionally said to have been erected by St Columba or one of his followers, although the character of building suggests a late medieval date for existing structure. A church building is said to have been erected about 1713 by George MacKenzie of Gruinard, but in reality it is likely that work was limited to repairs and re-thatching. The chapel seems to have remained in use for worship until at least the end of the 18th century, and was in use for burials by 1834, the earliest decipherable date on any of the gravestones within the walls.
