Gleann Cholm Cille/Glencolmcille

Turas Station 4

About 60 metres south east of St Colmcille's chapel is a small Leacht, it looks like a small cairn but is rectangular in shape. On the top of the leacht is a small cross inscribed slab. The slab is made from schist and stands almost a metre tall with the latin cross inscribed on the western face. The station is situated inside a low circular enclosure with an eastern entrance. On our visit the grass was quite long, making it difficult to see the low stones of the enclosure. Hopefully we will get back to stations 3, 4, 5, 6 in the future, we were very disappointed with the light on this visit. Station 5 can be seen to the left in the background.

Situated: From Station 3 head towards the town. Take the first right. Follow signs for St Colmcille's chapel. The church ruin can be seen or your right. Walk through the farmyard and turn right. Station 4 can be seen 60 metres south west of here.
