St. Columba's Isle, Snizort.


This small island in the River Snizort is an ancient and important religious site in the west of Scotland.



In this beautiful spot, known as Eilean Chaluin Chille, the Island of Columba's Church, was the cathedral church of the Bishops of the Isles 1079-1498.



It is just seaward of the road bridge across the river. Access is off the minor road to Tote & Crepigill from the main Portree-Dunvegan road.

Apparently very few people visit this area which is a pity as it is very interesting with many knights, kings, and people of note buried here.
