Raasay Old Burial Ground, St. Moluag's.


A small burial ground, beautifully located across the road, to the rear of Raasay House.



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. Kilmaluag Image No. 2113).[See 'Some Highland Saints' by Elizabeth Sutherland]

Do you have any idea where the Macleod of Raasay chiefs are buried or gravestones are placed. Is there a site at Brochiel as well?

Hello John. If you look at canmore.org.uk/site/11466/skye-raasay-st-maol-luags-chapel and scroll down you'll see reference to a Macleod vault.

The Canmore website also has reference to the Brochel remains
