Founded in 722 by St. Maelrubha, the present building dates from 1619.
The tomb built into the niche on the south wall of the church is said to be the last resting-place of a famous local villain, Donald MacMurdo, known as Domhnull MacMhurchaidh, responsible for at least eighteen murders.
There are a number of interesting 18th and 19th century gravestones, notably the large stone to the Anderson’s of Keoldale.
A raised area to the south is the massed grave of the victims of the “Canton”, an emigrant ship which sank with the loss of all lives off Faraid Head in 1849.
A monument is in memory of Rob Donn Calder or Mackay, a noted Gaelic poet.
