The public burying places in this parish were
probably formed round the shrines of Saints or Ancient
Chapels; and in Urquart there is one at Kilmore,
the great burying ground, within which the present parish
church stands; One at Cill-Santninian, near Temple;
one at Cillmhichael, a short distance west of Drum-
nadrochit; and another in the height of the country at
Corrymony, called Claodh Churidan, the burial place of
Curidan. In Glenmoriston, the sequestered and
picturesquely lying burial place called Clachan an
Inair, that is the burying ground of the lower district, is
situated at the mouth of the valley, and another higher up
is denominated in honour of and old saint, Clachan
Merechard, the word clachan literally a stone, being
the distinctive appellation for a fane or church. Numerous
Sepulchral Cairns and Circles of upright stones
or ancient Pagan temples exist in the district, but none
so large as to merit a particular description.

This has been commemorated in a celebrated pibroch
called "the Raid of Cill-Christ" said to have been
