    The early Christian chapel or teampull Taigh a’Bheannaich is situated a mile south of Gallan Head (NB 03872 37898) near the headland called Am Beannachadh (The Blessing Place).

    The interior dimensions of the chapel are approximately 5.5m x 3.3m and the walls are partially collapsed.  The remains of a dozen small cellular buildings surround the site, constituting a monastic community.  To the landward side, well-built stone and turf walls separate the headland from the settlement at Aird.
