Kilmaluag Burial Ground, St. Moluag's


Kilmaluag is near the northern end of the Trotternish peninsula on Skye. The burial ground is off a minor road (from the A855) leading to Kilmaluag Bay. The view looks south towards Sgurr Mor at the north end of the Trotternish Ridge.



Lugaidh was a 6th C Irish missionary to the Picts ('Mo' is a term of affection). He is particularly associated with the island of Lismore in Loch Linnhe, Argyll. His name is commemorated elsewhere on the western seaboard (eg. St. Moluag's on Raasay, Image No. 2117).[See 'Some Highland Saints' by Elizabeth Sutherland]



The modern extension has its own Album on the website - Kilmaluag Extension.
