An abandoned settlement.

KILMORE (Gaelic: Big church)
The present church, built 1876, stands on the site of an older church, built 1681, which in turn was built on the site of an ancient chapel. Nearby is the stone of Saint Columba. Legend says that he landed here and blessed the ground on which the church now stands. Many of the MacDonald chiefs are interred in the church graveyard.
