"Situated on the south facing slopes above the southern shore of Eilean Chalium Cille, this burial enclosure is constructed of shuttered concrete and measures 6 metres from west to east and 5 metres from north to south. It contains two burial monuments, located towards the west wall. The first is dedicated to Charles Menzies MacLead (1915-1967) and the second is to Mabel Petrie McCallum (1909-1988). This is the family burial ground of the current land owners - the MacLeods." (Burgess 2004, 92)
