Carbost, Trien, Bracadale..

Carbost Burial Ground, sometimes known as Trien, lies by Loch Harport, just below the minor road, which serves the Minginish peninsula. The modern cemetery is adjacent to a much older burial ground within the tres. No inscription is legible within the latter area.

I am trying to figure out if my ggg grandmother was buried at Trien in 1896. Do you know what date the earliest stones in the new cemetery might be? And exactly how ancient the old cemetery is? Are there other older cemeteries in Carbost?

Edie, the modern section appears to be post-WWII. I have no information about the date of the older section (which is a lot smaller). I could not find any inscribed stone there.

There is an old burial ground a few miles away at the head of Loch Harport at Bracadale. Eynort is also an old one over the hill from Carbost.

Thanks, Roddie. Do you know what the burial site at the head of Loch Harport is called? This is really helpful, thank you.

Bracadale, Edie. It's included here.

Is there a headstone for Donald Stewart died 1837 and buried at Eynort Cemetery, Minginish? Are there any other Stewart's buried there?
