Dalvuie Burial Ground

Above Dalvuie Farm is an unconsecrated burial ground, for the young children who had not been baptised.
This area has long been a sacred place with a wishing well and Votive tree

Manx billey-glas, 'a growing or green tree,' occurs in the Manx Bible (Jer. xi. 16). In Scotland it is met with at Benderloch in Tobar bhile nam miann, 'the well of the wishing tree.' There were formerly some stones near the place, as if a little graveyard had been there at one time (cf. The Oban Times, 4th and 18th March, 1907).1
