Notes

OS Name Book states that it was erected y Ailean nan Creach, chief of Locheil. No trace of the church now, nor local knowledge of one. There are two eighteenth-century tombs (NMRS). Nearby are Beinn na Cille, Allt Coire na Cille, Camas na Cille, Allt a' Chleirich (OS 6 inch 1st edn). Note that Kilbodan, the settlement name whose early forms give much earlier insight, is derived from this name, making it clear that Modan is not the dedicatee.
