This is such a special place. It’s difficult to explain the feeling you get when walking this ground. It’s alive with strong vibrant energy that fills you with a deep sense of peacefulness.
St Barevan’s Church dates to the mid 13th century. It is situated near Cawdor Castle, and served as the Cawdor parish church for over 300 years until the present church at Cawdor was built.
Burials have taken place here from its earliest beginnings to the early 20th century. An iron bell from the church is held in Cawdor Castle.
The church was no longer used from 1619. It was made into a Scheduled Ancient Monument in 1972 with the churchyard being included in 2001.
The graveyard contains a ‘strength-testing’ stone, called ‘The Clans’ Putting Stone’ which rests beside a stone coffin. You’ll see the large round stone in the video. If you feel up to it, you can lift it!
So come and enjoy a walk around this historic site with Andy and Di Nicholson… we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
