Church of St. Clement

Church of St. Clement at Rodel is situated at the southern tip of Harris, near Leverburgh.

The church was built in the 16th century by Alexander MacLeod of Harris and Dunvegan , otherwise known as Alasdair Crotach (humpback), due to a sword wound. The main features of interest are three tombs carved in black gneiss depicting knights, and the tomb of Alexander (picture to the right).

The church is open to the public and run by ‘Historic Scotland’. The church is normally open and there is no entry charge. Good views from the tower, however, it must be pointed out that the steps are nearly vertical, and the staircase narrow.
