    Than again the cult of national history and traditions of the Scottish people, which apparently resulted in the past visitors to the grave of the heroine who succeeded in leaving for France the defeated Bonnie Prince Charlie to appropriate piece by piece to so many "relics of the monument by taking it to destruction (there is now only a shred of Crown , placed on the ground) and to oblige to rebuild it in a more contemporary way. However the monument itself I don't think you could sell, for a tourist, the same level of interest in many other subjects. Much more attractive and interesting, a little farther in the same cemetery, the remains of a medieval tomb of a warrior. That's worth a careful look!

  • Worth a look, keep an eye out for the grave marker for Alexander McQueen which is surprisingly also there.
  • This is just beyond words. The surrounding hills and the Outer Hebridies on the ocean are just breathtaking. The Kilmuir Graveyard is a stilling place.
  • Lovely place
  • Located in the vicinity of the museum village. About 5 minutes walk to reach.

  • This cemetery is absolutely worth a visit - and not only because of the tomb of Flora MacDonald. There are many interesting old gravestones here. And the atmosphere - if you are lucky, just alone to be there straight - is absolutely mystical!
