Angel Hill

Angel Hill is a small fenced hilltop enclosure. It is thought by some that the name could be a corruption from Gaelic for a Beacon or Fire Hill. In early Christian times it was the custom to light fires on high ground near to religious sites. Just when or why the descision to use this hill top for burials was made is unclear but the early burials were of the Maclennan family.
