Dedicated to St. Cairell. The Irish missionary, St Cairell, is thought to have left Iona c.600 AD. Along the route of his journey through the Highlands, he established several centres of Christianity, one such holy place being Cille Choirill in Brae Lochaber, east of Roy Bridge.The highest knoll on this site is Tom Angeal (the Hill of the Angels), an ancient burial ground, the final resting place of laity, priests and bishops of Lochaber. According to local tradition, the first recorded church on the site was built or restored by Ailean nan Creach, a fifteenth century Cameron chief, in atonement for his violent life. Over the centuries, the chapel fell into disrepair but in 1932, and again in 1991, it was restored and repaired, thanks to the generous funding provided by the descendants of Lochaber people who emigrated to Nova Scotia at the end of the nineteenth century.
