Thank you for that news, Cliff. Excellent initiative. Like many of the older graveyards in the Highlands, it needs some sensitive TLC. Years of strimming as main maintenance operation not sufficient.

The older graveyards like Eynort are often found close of the shore indicating how important sea transport was for local access eg, Kilmore, Ashaig, Kilmarie, Bracadale.
