The shameful state of our graveyards

I WAS passing through North Ballachulish recently and was disappointed to find the little Highland Council graveyard at Creag Mhor in such a poor state of repair. The grass and weeds were knee high and a section of the surrounding wall had been knocked down and replaced with a cheap wooden railing.

Although small, the site has many interesting headstones, including that of the well-respected parish minister, the Rev Alexander Stewart (1829-1901) or ‘Nether Lochaber’, as he was known all over the Highlands. For more than 40 years his regular articles and letters graced the pages of this and other newspapers and periodicals, resulting in two books, Nether Lochaber (1883) and Twixt Ben Nevis and Glencoe (1885).
