This ruined chapel dates from the 8th or 9th century. Most of the south wall, the east gable wall, and the east part of the north wall are still present. The south wall contains a doorway with long-and-short jambs and an arch with concentric grooves.

In 1977 an excavation took place to the south of the chapel, which dated the site to the late 6th or early 7th century. The excavation uncovered burials which were no earlier than the 10th century.

Near to the chapel is a group of six rock-cut graves which date to the 11th century. A separate group of two rock-cut graves lie nearby. Each grave has a rock-cut socket which probably housed a timber cross, or grave marker.
