Notes

On the promontory called Rubha an Teampaill (OS Digimap). NMRS describes the remains, and notes that a broch was discovered underlying the chapel. The Old Statistical Account includes a list of chapels (though it calls them churches) dependent on St Clement's at Rodel, a few miles to the south: "'The churches of more modern date are called after saints, whose names are well known in the Roman calendar, viz. St Bryde, St Rufus, St Luke, St Mary. All these, together with the smaller chapels belonging to them, depended immediately on the priory church at Rowdill, dedicated to St Clement". It is likely that 'Luke' here is a misunderstanding of Mo-Luóc.
