Kintail


Highland

The remnants of settlement at the head of Loch Duich, Kintail lies to the east of Inverinate in Highland Council Area. Located here is the roofless shell of St. Dubbtbach's, the old Parish Church of Kintail dating from the 15th Century. It was shelled by government ships in pursuit of a Spanish-backed Jacobites expedition which landed here in 1719, but later repaired. The church fell from use in the middle of the 19th century and a replacement was built a mile (1.5 km) to the west. A cemetery and the Clan MacRae War Memorial (1927) lie adjacent to the old kirk.
