The most isolated of all Manx keeills which stands on a small platform on the steep western sloapes near to the foot of Cronk Ny Arrey Laa.

The original boundaries of the burial ground are almost perfect and just outside the foundation of the priest’s cell.

Several cross slabs and many lintel graves have also been discovered here.

The name Lag Ny Keeilley means “The hollow of the chapel”
